The special issue

Ring Raiders was a fortnightly comic published by Fleetway in 1989; it lasted for six issues, plus a preview issue numbered 0, a 64-page special and a 1990 annual.[1][2][3] The comic was part of a franchise which included a toy line from Matchbox and an American cartoon series — the toys consisted of model planes attached to rings which could be worn around the finger, hence the title.

Ring Raiders took place in the then-near-future of 1998, and revolved around a conflict between two groups of time-travelling fighter pilots — the heroic Ring Raiders and the villainous Skull Squadron — who fly various aircraft from the past, present and future.
