Hi Stephen, do you have a contact I could ask about my subscription?

I signed up last year, and only received Volume 22, issue 1. I have made 3 attempts at contacting them to no avail.
Thanks in advance for any info...

Stephen, Their website has not been updated in quite a while, since August of 2007, and lists volume 22 #1 as the latest issue. I was wondering if the League was still publishing. I will be counting my quarters and signing up, glad to see that the issues are still coming out.

Greetings Dwayne, here is a response from one of the main editors of OtF.


Quoted Text

"The League lost it's webmaster and is without one at the present. They are looking for someone, but they really need some qualified who isn't a hack since there are electronic transactions that have to be taken care of, etc. That is why it is currently out of date.

Thanks for the review!
Aaron"

After a read through here are some corrections to note.
Pp.318 - 319, the Nieuport 17 (120hp LeRhône) Al speaks of is probably a Nieuport 21 (80hp LeRhône). All of the AEF type 21 trainers at Issoudon had the full cowls.

On page 339 top image of parked Fokker D.VI types and other fighters collected after the war. If these are from Jasta 80b this may be Armee Gruppe Albrecht. Collection airfield, Saarbrucken. 19 Armee. post 11.11.18
Gruja Nr.9.
Jasta 3
Jasta 18
Jasta 54s
Jasta 77b
Jasta 80b
Kest 3.

Page 344, small correction to my piece. At the end of my article on Jasta 64w the date “1 Nov. 1918" should be “11 Nov. 1918.” Probably my mistake / typo.
