See the logo on the right!? You can now click on it and become a Facebook ‘friend’ of AVClassic too. Facebook seems to be ‘THE’ place to be these days. I know I use it more than my blog, it is much quicker and easier. Not entirely the same as a blog or proper website of course, but a great way to stay in touch with many people.

AVClassic Facebook posts are now also automatically relayed to another of these ‘new fangled social services’; Twitter. Yes, we ‘twit’ (or tweet?) all this news to mobile phones all over the world. Mind you, ‘twit’ in the Queen’s English has a total different meaning! *grin*.

Any self respecting organization needs a logo of course, so I made one for as well. It is shown here on the left (if all works as advertised, that is). I’ll post it on the ‘Press page’ later on too, so interested parties can copy it from there to use it on their link to our pages ! (nudge nudge, wink wink).

We are using Google’s wonderful calendar plug-in to keep track of various aviation events. You can find it on the Events tab on the left. You may have to wait a bit for the calendar to build and display, so please be patient. The calendar is ‘interactive’, that means you can click on various parts of it to move through time or zoom in on days! Try it !

First post on our News Page.

As of now we’ll start filling the pages with links and information. Links to websites of museums, collections and other organizations occupied with the history of flying. Keeping that history alive, literally, is one of the things that we find VERY important. Too much is being taken for granted nowadays. Our kids are used to go through rigorous security checks at the airport, yes. But after that they walk through a tunnel and sit in a bus-like seat, fly somewhere and get out again. Without much thought most of the time. And so do we.

But how different was flying 60 or 80 years ago. And how impossible was it a mere 100 years ago !

We don’t want that colorful history of one of the most miraculous things in men’s evolution to go forgotten and all these museums, volunteers, mechanics, pilots and other people working day in day out to keep those old planes polished, and often even flying, share that passion.

This site is to make you aware of who they are, what they do and where to find them !

We greatly value ANY help in keeping this site running!
