Airliners of the Interbellum
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed aviation as we know it. One of the effects of it all was “going back in time”, by trying to complete logs, or making an attempt to scan old slides. Nostalgia kept us going and we, as Scramble, cannot fall behind. In a series of three articles we will take you back in time, starting with the Interbellum, the period between the Great War (WW I) and WW II.
 
B747 - Queen of the Sky
Fifty-one years ago, on 9 February 1969 the Boeing 747 took to the skies for the very first time. Since then more than 1,500 B747s have been built. As the pandemic of COVID-19 travels over the world, most airlines have decided to accelerate the retirement of their Jumbojets. So, time to honour the Queen in Scramble, complete with an extensive overview of this iconic plane in the history of aviation.

Scramble F-16 Fighting Falcon 6th Edition
 
The Dutch Aviation Society / Scramble is very proud to announce the sixth edition of the well known F-16 Fighting Falcon production list. The previous edition dates back to May 2006, since then this book has been updated and extended to the newest edition of 2019.
 
The publication is realised with the intensive help of F-16.net. Both Scramble and F-16.net databases were compared and integrated and this led to an extensive A5 format book with no less than 244 pages and 80 exclusive colour photos.
 
This F-16 reference work is a must have for every F-16 lover and aviation researcher. Next to detailed information on every airframe, the publication gives a good insight in the history of the fighter aircraft and numerous Block numbers and upgrade versions. The production list includes all 4,588 airframes, construction numbers, squadrons and the last-noted dates of all F-16s built by General Dynamics, Lockheed and Lockheed Martin. As a gift, we also included the production list of all 100 Kawasaki F-2A and F-2B fighters.
 
The F-16 book is arranged in country chapters and these also includes the Air Orders of Battle. In this way you can find out which country flies what type of F-16, to which squadron it is assigned and where it is based.
 
The book is limited edition print and can be ordered on-line via www.scramble.nl/shop for a special price.
