Do you love airplanes and flight?

Historic Wings offers you a free daily e-newsletter of flight stories from the past and present. At HW, you’ll discover new things about aviation every day!


To celebrate our return to publishing, we will soon be announcing a promotional giveaway — many of you may remember how many years ago, we gave away a ride in a P-51D Mustang.  We’d like to do that again.  Subscribe today and you’ll be automatically entered.  The announcement will be coming soon once we have the details worked out.



Please enter your email address to subscribe.  Thank you!

Also, if you like our publication, please “Like” us on your Facebook page, tell others via Twitter, and add us to your Google+ and Pinterest pages!  It takes a lot to keep an online magazine going, so your support is always welcome and very much appreciated!

Privacy and Mailing List Policies

Historic Wings is operated by Thomas Van Hare.   Historic Wings respects the private nature of your personal information. This Privacy Policy describes how it uses your information.

1. Will Not Rent, Share or Sell

Historic Wings does not and will not rent, share, or sell our subscriber list except as required by law. Unsubscribing from our list is easy — just click the link in the bottom of any email and you will be removed from the list immediately.

2. Advertising, External Links and Use of Cookies

Historic Wings may run advertising, may use cookies, and may provide links to other sites.  In the event that we employ cookies, it is simply to store and retrieve information related to our website and our content and not to retrieve or uncover other information.  We have experienced that our advertisers sometimes use cookies as well to measure how often links we share with you are clicked on, among other related advertising purposes.  We cannot directly control the content of advertising banners, though if you find any advertising offensive, please let us know immediately.  We hope you find the experience on any of the sites we link to appropriate, however, we can’t be responsible for the content that appears on those sites (and we do not endorse that content, either).

3. Mailing List Software

To send the emails, Historic Wings uses MailChimp, which is a really well-designed email software service.  Be aware that MailChimp tracks things like if you open the email and when you click links. You can read their privacy policy here.

4.  Changes to the Privacy Policy

We do not expect to have to change our privacy policy — like probably ever –but if we do, the changes will be published right here and will be always available to you for instant review.  We expect that we will also notify you of any changes through our email newsletter.

5. Attitude and Altitude is Everything

The bottom line is our intent has always been and will always be to respect you and your privacy.  We fly the high way, not the low way.  That’s our attitude and altitude and that is what matters.  Again, if you have any problems, let us know immediately.
