Ever wondered where the ‘Contact’ name came from?

Our inspiration was drawn from the name of the national magazine of the RNZAF, which was published between March 1941 and December 1945. It was briefly revived by the Air Force Association in 1952 until early 1955. From personnel profiles and sporting activities to station news from around the country the magazine also featured cartoons, poetry and honour lists. The magazine was always represented with humour and satire, and also featured interesting stories related to Air Force customs.
