  • Cincinnati "Albatross Birdmen News" Inaugural Issues - 1936/37

    SKU: 21-MAG-77

     Three issues of this fledgling aviation club, each 8.5x11", mimeographed, stapled.  Vol I, Copy I, Oct 1, 1936, 6pp.  Vol II, Copy I, Jan 1937, 4pp. Vol II, Copy II, May 1937, 3pp.  Likely these are the first three issues of this flying club with a glider and a powered aircraft based at Parks Watson Airport.  Content includes member news, contest results, aircraft news, etc.  It's likely this is a unique offering as I imagine very few of these newsletters have survived over the last 82 years. Very good; Vol I Copy I at the top of the first page was smeared in production.
