Air Surveyor magazines

The Air Surveyor was a quarterly magazine with articles written by staff from all departments and locations from 1957 to 1960, and distributed internally.  Lots of in jokes and clever line drawings – even a crossword.

News Bulletin No 1 – 31st Mar 1957     The title wasn’t fixed, and there was a competition for the name of the new bulletin – prize 200 cigarettes!  None of the suggestions for a title was felt to be entirely suitable (Fairey Tales from Fairchild Aerial Surveys, Fairey Stories from Gillian Waring, F.A.S. Mosaic from Fred Crooks …) so the Managing Director selected the title of “The Air Surveyor”.  The 200 cigarettes were given to Gillian Waring and Fred Crooks, to be shared equally.
