Huntington, IN – Vintage Aviation Publications, publisher of Warbird Digest, (warbirddigest.com) has announced the acquisition of Warbirds News ( warbirdsnews.com), the popular online news platform dedicated to warbird restoration and aviation museums.
Warbird Digest was recently re-acquired by its original founder, Tim Savage, who first created the publication in 2004. As part of a strategic development plan, Savage wants to add a strong digital component to the company, hence the acquisition of Warbirds News.
“We are excited with our partnership with Warbirds News. We believe that the best way to help promote the warbird movement is through a mixed media message which includes print, digital and video. We look forward to continuing the excellent content that Warbirds News has delivered in the past.”
Warbirds News was founded in 2013 by Moreno Aguiari, who began with several years experience as an executive in the online industry already under his belt.

“We are a group of passionate warbird enthusiasts who love the history and technology that aviation museums and flying collections preserve for the public,” said Moreno Aguiari. “I started Warbirds News with the intention of playing a role in safeguarding the heritage of these fascinating machines by providing increased awareness and education about them through the use of internet-based, digital media.”
Warbirds News receives several hundred thousand visitors a month, and it has a big fan base on social media. “I am very excited about the opportunity of joining Tim and his team to develop a world-class vintage aviation media company.
