Aviation magazines in the premium indie sector are – excuse the expression – thin on the ground. In view of this, sleek newcomer Wings could be excused if it wallowed in page after page of aviation-engineering pornography.
But it doesn't, and it looks likely to bring many newcomers to the genre. While evincing a healthy reverence for the nuts and bolts of the flying business, Wings is also very much an affecting, even emotional, photography magazine about flight. The central plank of the magazine is, in their words, to bring 'a new perpective of aviation journalism with an extensively thought through identity, ensuring that words and images take centre stage.'
