  1. Thank you!. Very useful

  2. Hi Bill,
    I was wondering if you could give me the benefit of your wisdom with regard to Air International. I have an almost complete collection beginning with Air Enthusiast June 71 through to Air Enthusiast International and on to Air International all the way to Feb 08, with only 8 issues missing. Are you aware of any specialist magazine dealers or perhaps anyone you know who might be interested in this collection. Thanks for your time Bill.
    All the best.

    • Hi Gavin,
      Hmmm, loose collection of magazines? I’d have a look at what the single issues sell for on eBay for “market price” and then look to see if there’s a premium for complete “volume” (6 issues) sets… Obviously a nearly complete set of magazines would be catnip to the right buyer. To give you the range of prices I’ve seen, I just filled in my missing volume 8, 6 issues, bound, and I paid $15 for them. That’s $2.50 each, not a bad, ‘quantity’, purchase price. I think I’ve paid up to $20 for a bound volume. $25 would be the most I could contemplate- Yes, a subscription costs more. That’s why I buy them second hand.

      Hay on Wye booksellers might have someone who specializes in Air Enthusiast/International, in the Uk. In the USA, I’d recommend C. A. Hood & Associates, as I bought a bunch of bound volumes from them long ago, and Hood, bless her heart, puts basic table-of-contents info in online and catalog listings. You might try Dan Webb Books here in Oakland, not sure Dan would be buying magazines, whereas I believe C. A. Hood & Assoc. probably are.
      One last UK vendor is KingKit, who sometimes puts dozens of magazine back issues up on eBay, so I know he’s got some… but they may come with kit collections purchased from the surviving relatives…

      Good luck!

      I generally recommend for l
