Should there be an 'Aviation History' subsection?

Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:43 pm

I often find that the standard Civil Aviation sub-forum sees a lot of posts that are some rendition of the below:

- Help me identify this plane at LAX from 1963
- Did PeopleExpress have a EWR hub in 1978?
- Did AA ever fly domestic 747 routes?
- Did DL every fly ATL-ANC?
- Cool old picture of a AA 747SP that I just found in my attic!

I think that instead of having these co-exist with current event topics in Civil Aviation there might be a sub-forum market for aviation history that could cover topics like the above?

Thoughts?

We do listen however before we decide that it actually goes ahead you need to show us an argument why there should be a sub forum for history and that it is what the community wants. As neither of these points have been yet its a moot point. If we do agree on such a sub forum later down the track it is ultimately up to the developers to add it, that is actually out of the mods hands.
