Fliegerrevue Extra

A new line of periodicals for Linden Hill. Fliegerrevue Extra (FRX) is, to all extents and purposes, the German-language analog of International Air Power Review. As with IAPR, FRX is a quarterly journal, profusely illustrated with exclusive photographs and profiles, covering historical and modern aviation; both military and civil. What sets FRX apart is the preponderance of features on subjects close to the bailiwick of Linden Hill! Some of FRX's editorial team clearly have their roots in the old GDR and each issue contains a large proportion of articles related to the GDR, USSR, Russia and related Cold War subjects. All issues listed below are highly recommended.
