Flight International is taking a two-week break over the festive season - our first issue of 2012 comes out on 10 January.
But in the meantime, we are finishing 2011 with a bang. Our value-packed last issue of the year, out on 20 December, includes - pay attention at the back there! - Uncle Roger's Festive Quiz. How much of the year do you remember and how many of the big news stories have departed from your brain like a scrambled fighter jet? Our six-page quiz is your chance to find out.
There are five features on historic aircraft, giving you a chance to find out how David Learmount got on when he flew a Spitfire in the skies the Battle of Britain was fought in and how enthusiasts are restoring Germany's answer to the 1960s Learjet, the forward swept wing Hansa Jet. And there's the remarkable story of how an obscure US museum is restoring the only P-61B Black Widow to flight from wreckage found on an Indonesian hillside.
Our editors cast their eyes into the future to predict what 2012 has in store in our annual Forecasts piece.
And our front cover is adorned with the year's best aviation image...as judged by Flightglobal from dozens of entries on our AirSpace online community site. You can see the best of the rest in a four-page special inside.
