Our dedicate (and slow!) march towards documenting the highlights from our 100 year history continues.
It's slow going as the relevant coverage (in the archive) of each specific event has to be individually researched. The trick is to ensure that our hand-picked links are to the most appropriate original content, whether it be a feature or just a simple reference, depending on the event itself.
For example, when highlighting the first ever Paris Aero Salon in December 1908, we opted to link to a comprehensive review of the event as this gives the reader a more rounded sense of the event. If however we're linking to a breaking news event, such as the demise of the Red Baron, then the first report of the event is the most appropriate as it carries a greater sense of immediacy for the reader.
As we go through the archive topic by topic and year by year we catalogue these links and when there's enough around a certain topic we put them together, while continuing to add to those already live with more links as we log them.
If you'd like to add to any of our topics or suggest your own then let our Content Editor - Babs - know ... .
