I love old aviation magazines. Flight Global had all issues of "Aeroplane" archived and online. Now Aviation Week has done the same, back to 1916. I signed up and registered and while I can log in, I can't seem to make the thumbnails expand so I can read the it at full resolution.

Had anyone else signed up yet and is it working for you? I suspect to may have to be a paying subscriber but it doesn't say that anywhere. Magazines from 1916...? I won't get anything done in the hangar anymore!

The FLIGHT magazine archives at https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/ have been a hugely helpful resource over the years, but the archive has been down for a maintenance for a few months now with no completion date mentioned. I'll see if I can access the AviationWeek archives, but I am not optimistic, they were a very paywall-minded organization even before that term existed.

Yes, I just heard back from them, you can only access the articles with a premium subscription. At a hundred bucks a year.
Bummer.

Back issues of the French weekly aviation magazine Les Ailes are available for free via the French national archives digital service Gallica. You can navigate the site in English though the back issues are, of course, in French. The years 1921-1963 are available except the occupation period starting in June 1940 though publication picked up again in December 1944.

For example.... ;-)

That is cool! I love how the French support these things. In regards to the cost of Aviation Week it might be worth it for a year. Can you download articles and save them?
