-An historical overview of the Belgian Magisters that started their career in the former Belgian Congo and ended it Belgium.
-A comprehensive chapter on the Belgian aerobatic team The Red Devils and other teams when flying the Magister. Also a separate section on solo display machines is not forgotten!
-A plane-to-plane section with details on all 50 Magisters employed by the Belgian air force.
-A separate section on crashes with Belgian air force Magisters.
-A detailed technical review of the Magister with a lot of detail photos and drawings.
-A walk around for the model builders, again with many, many photos.
-an additional six short chapters including a photo gallery, an overview of insignias and zapping used on the Belgian Magisters, a model kit review section and even a section devoted to Magister flight simulators. Extensive colour profiles and 3-view drawings are also included. Most of the illustrations are in full colours and there are hundreds of them. In total the books contains no less than 680 illustrations!
