Aviation Magazines on Display at the Buena Park Library District

Early aviation magazines are on display at the Buena Park Library District, located at 7150 La Palma Ave., in Buena Park, on La Palma between Knott and Western Avenues. The display is courtesy of Scott Ford, of Ford Electronics in Buena Park.

The earliest magazine on display is an issue of Aero-America’s Aviation Weekly dated October 14, 1911. The magazines chronicle the development of aviation in the United States from early days of flight through the 1940's. Also on display are photographs, including an aerial photograph of the "new" Los Angeles City Hall, dated January 9, 1928. Looking at the colorful magazine covers from the World War II years is like opening a time capsule and reliving the past.

The display will run through the end of October and can be viewed during library hours. The Buena Park Library is open Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
