Index to Airshipworld Journal (formerly GASBAG Journal & Newsletter)

Published by the LTA Institute, P.O. BOX 74-420, Greenlane, Auckland 1546, NEW ZEALAND
We have stocks of most back issues of AirshipWorld Magazine (formerly Gasbag Journal to 2000), also incorporating Aerostation Magazine.
Details on request from: ljs@airshipworld.com

The publication was established in 1989, and commenced as a combined Journal and Newsletter, with newsletters being issued in February & April, August & October, Journals in June & December. In 1990, due to postal rate changes, the journal became a quarterly, March, June, September & December; newsletters were also published in Feb. & April of 1990. The format (A5 - 210 x 148mm) continued until issue 26, December 1995. With the March 1996 issue the journal Aerostation (not indexed) was incorporated, and the format enlarged to 275 x 212 mm, with colour laminated cover. The name was changed to Airshipworld with the March 2001 issue and publication continued until journal 58, December 2003.

The index is arranged with the newsletter or journal number followed by the page number(s), for example, NL2-7, or J34-15ff. When multiple page articles are indexed, they have the number of pages and main info included in brackets after the initial listing, for example, J34-15ff (3pp, 3pix, plan). Colour photos are denoted 4Cpic or 4Cpix for multiples; the last 3 issues, #56-8, were not folioed on the covers, and are listed as FC, IFC for front and inside front, and IBC and OBC for the rear cover inside and out.

A feature of the journals has been coverage of the Zeppelin historical activities and the current NT project, it being the most extensive of any English language publication. As well as being in the general listing, Zeppelin also has its own listing, which will aid reference to the material. This includes well over 100 pages of text and photos, many of which are in colour. There is also much material on British airship projects which has been included over the years, a considerable amount of it not published elsewhere. This applies particularly to Airship Industries airships, the Thunder & Colt GA-42, and the Advanced Airship Corp-oration’s ill-fated Advanced Non Rigid project. Also with J27, a feature “Flashback” was introduced. These were short LTA items from earlier days, and have the suffix FB after the relevant page number. They have also been listed separately in alphabetical order to highlight the material contained. Issue #44, June 2000, was a Zeppelin Flight Centennial special totalling, with Aerostation, 100 pages, a gathering of much widely scattered information into one source.

A notable feature of the journal has been the inclusion of numerous fine airship plans from Herman Van Dyk, often with extensive editorial input from him also. These are noted in the index, many of them being double page fold-out inserts.
