I don’t know how many of you are aware that we have something of a “spin off” series from Chicken Wings, called “Moments in Aviation History”. We rarely ever put any strips on our website, but Mike sends some of them to Trade-A-Plane, and they are a regular feature in the German aviation history magazine Flugzeug Classic. We’re slowly building up a repertoire big enough to make a whole book with them, but it will still take a little while. It may or may not come out before Chicken Wings number six.

Anyway, here’s one cartoon from the series. For those of you who, like us, always wondered where this particular peculiar tradition stems from.
