A second edition of the "Propliner" annual featuring news and events that have taken place during the last year, together with a wide range of both topical and historical articles, will be published in April 2017. Containing 108 pages, the annual is more than double the size of the quarterly magazine, and features three 'Prop News' sections, together with a dozen major articles. Marcelo Magalhaes spotlights the history of the Avro 748 with VARIG in Brazil, Keith Simpson uncovers the mystery of the little-known Barkley-Grow T8P-1 in Canada, and Fred Barnes take a tour around Austria aboard Austrian Airlines Avro 748s and an Aero Grand Commander. Tony Merton Jones looks at the aviation enterprises of John Gaul, ranging from Trans World Charter Vickers Vikings to the purchase of a fleet of Canadair North Stars. Renowned historian Peter Marson reviews the operations of BOAC’s fleet of early Lockheed L-049 Constellations, while Christopher Buckley spends a day flying on a Wilderness Seaplanes Grumman Goose in British Columbia, and Ugo Vicenzi spends time investigating the NASA-operated Super Guppy. Thanks to Michael Prophet, we enjoy a tour of the ramp at Opa Locka and discover the growth in Convairliner operations at this airport, while Roger Syratt takes us further west in the United States with a tour of airfields in southern California and Arizona. Karl Hayes chronicles the long history of a Douglas DC-6A delivered new to Canadian Pacific Air Lines in 1958, and still going strong in Alaska with Everts Air Cargo. Martin Willing describes the operations of a pair of early production Lockheed Electras flown by Cathay Pacific, and Tom Singfield conveys us to the paradise of Polynesia and the fascinating story of a trio of Percival Princes. Airlines of South Australia Douglas DC-3s are remembered by Nigel Daw, and Maurice Wickstead takes on the challenge of chronicling the rise and fall of TACA in Central America. There is also a Readers’ Response section containing readers’ comments and featuring some historic photographs from long ago, and, much more besides. Surely a thoroughly good read!
