Ghost Wings Magazine (Valor Magazine)

There are many aviation magazine out there to choose from. All have glossy photographs and many slick layouts. Ghost Wings has both of those, and one other attribute that no other can boast - an unstoppable passion and enthusiasm for history, aviation and veterans. Here's why:

The magazine is written, designed, funded and published by four young men from Pennsylvania who are in High School and College. Don't let that description fool you. This is a full color, 48 page publication that is up to, and above the production value of other periodicals in this genre. There efforts have won the attention of the likes of Tom Hanks and Senator Bob Dole, and countless WWII veterans.

Each issue is packed with information and enthusiasm, with interviews, on subjects ranging from WWII, Vietnam and contemporary interviews with authors, aviation artists and reports on events, like the development of the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC. This magazine is an excellent choice, for its wide range of content and its detailed and passionate work on the stories of America's aviators and history. Of particular interest for Pacific War enthusiast are the following two issues:

Issue 2
Alone in Headhunter Country - Story of O'Sullivan's P-38 in New Guinea, 306th Airdrome Squadron, Joining the Caterpillar Club about B-24's in China, Ghost B-17, Hawaiian Airfields

Issue 6
The Battle for Wake Island and museum profile of the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, CA.

Issue 9
Korea , Japanese Sandman II, D-Day Troop Carrier pilots

Ghost Wings is now known as Valor Magazine.
