Another year, another volume! 45 years and still going - as strong as ever. Volume 45 Number 1 has been despatched and will be with UK members by now. If you're overseas and subscribed airmail, your journal won't be far behind. However, surface mail is getting slower and slower - some US and Australian members will still be waiting for their copy in ten weeks. If you live outside the UK and look forward to seeing your journal (who doesn't!) we advise you to upgrade to airmail.
It's time to sign up for the 2014 CCI Seminar - 14/15th June. We're accepting payment either through the web shop or by post. There's ten first class speakers spread over two days, plus real ale - so it's promising to be a weekend to remember! Partners are also very welcome - at very little extra.
Don't forget the 2014 AGM at the RAF Museum at Hendon on Saturday 26th April. The Leaman Lecture this year is being given at 11:00 by Dr Phil Judkins of the University of Buckingham on the subject of "Air Defence and Telecommunications in WW1" - should be fascinating! The formal AGM starts at 14:00, followed after tea by Phil Jarrett's ever-popular Book Sale & Auction.

We have an active Facebook page, cared for by Adrian Roberts; and a twitter account @crosscockade, so that those of us into social networking can better keep abreast of events in the world of WW1 aviation.
This journal also includes the further selection of A2 Ordnance Survey maps, of WW1 vintage, marked up with the location of all sites of WW1 aviation interest. When complete, this series of high quality maps will cover the whole of the UK and Ireland.
