Social media

For those of you who follow our social media (Facebook and Twitter) you may have seen a remarkable increase in our activity. This is to expand our presence on the world wide web even more than we already do, by giving you all the latest civil and military aviation news that flows about on the web. For a volunteer organisation we try our best to stay as up-to-date as possible, but at times we will not be able to keep
that level up, as other commitments come in the way. We do not want to copy the mainstream media as we try as much as possible to generate news in a way that you can expect from Scramble. We are always on the look-out for ‘hot news’, also for Facebook and Twitter, and you can always get in toch with the editorial team for this on

Publications 2018
We have started with the preparations for the SWAF and SMS Europe, and also for the EMOOS. For both the SWAF and SMS we are looking for pictures for the covers, so if you have something exceptional you can send it to or, with the tag SWAF or SMS.

BARG DVD 3 (1989 - 1994) 

This is the second of a series of four DVDs planned to be produced on a 6-monthly basis over a 2-year period, which started in the summer of 2016.

Between 1958 and 2000 the British Aviation Reasearch Group (as it became known after a total of four name changes) produced approximately 29,000 pages of of primarily military aviation data and photographs in BARG's magazines and many other books and monographs. Although the publications side of BARG ceased in 2000 the then BARG Committee has remained in existence to oversee the assets and the good name of the Group. Although BARG has been enthusiastic over the last six years, it is only within the last nine months that an opportunity has arisen to digitise over four DVDs the entire output of BARG in its current and former incarnations. All this was made possible with the help of the Dutch Aviation Society.


Each DVD contains around 7,000 pages of indexed and digitally searchable data, photographs and memorabilia. The DVD also contains search instructions. The most challenging, and complex, is DVD 1 (1957-1981) containing different sizes of newsletters and magazines of varying quality, printing methods and typefaces, ranging from stencils to those produced with the now obsolete inked-fabric ribbon and electric "Golfball" typewriter. DVD 1 will be the third DVD produced.Prices: Subscribers Netherlands €22.50, subscribers all other countries €29.25 (all prices inclusive of P&P),non-subscribers pay €5.00 extra.
