Aviation Week & Space Technology launched its 100-year digital archive today in collaboration with, the sponsor of the archive. Both companies trace their roots to 1916.
The archive includes 4,500 issues and nearly 500,000 pages of articles, photos and advertising. It can be seen at archive.aviationweek.com
The archive can be viewed by anyone who visits the site and can be searched by year, event, company, personality or author. Among the many interesting features: a Viewpoint from Orville Wright calling for “distinctly marked and carefully prepared landing places,” the precursor to the airport, a letter to the magazine from Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, the revelation of “Project X,” which became the Boeing 707, pilot reports on hundreds of civil and military aircraft and the Apollo 11 moon landing, which was featured on eight of the magazine’s covers in the summer of 1969.
