I was thinking the other day of what was the piece of memorabilia in my airline collection that means the most to me. Then I got to thinking that it would be cool to see what you all consider prized to you in your own eyes and why?

Here's mine... it's a Royal Air Maroc ashtray (who even know they made these?) from probably the 60s or 70s I'm guessing. I don't really know much about it other that I bought it from someone in Spain and it's old. It's in excellent condition and is sort of metallic (I assume this because it's always cool to the touch) and the shape and style of it is just beautiful to me. It's almost like a work of art! Anyone know more about this ashtray btw.. like where it was used?

Undoubtedly my flown Concorde engine parts all black with smoke and burns.
They rotated on all serial AF and BA Concordes including f-btsc the crashed Concorde.  crying 

Then the rest of my Concorde memorabilia especially the signed pictures of Concorde prototype F-WTSS maiden flight in Toulouse 2 March 1969. Then my beautiful collection of Concorde silk scarves and other textiles. Also personal gifts given to me by various Concorde captains and pilots.

I do not think anyone else in the world has a collection of Concorde scarves as complete as mine including the Sud Aviation silk scarf from the maiden fligth in 1969.

Also my "First to Fly the A380" memorabilia, the goodie bags from the inaugural flights and all, and the safety card that was on board the A380 Airbus prototype on her maiden flight.

My favorite memorabilia is an original North Atlantic Plotting Chart, a present for me from the Captain on one of my recent flights  

My grandparents once flew on KLM in Business or First about 30 years ago and received two of the famous Dutch house models as a gift, I think they're still distributed today. Very nice souvenir as well!

I have 3 things that I think are really cool:

1 is a window section off an AA 727. The second is a set of 4 middle seats from a PanAm 747. The third, and probably the coolest, is a framed certificate commissioning a pilot an "Admiral of the Flagship Fleet," with an AA seal, ribbon, and the signature of the legendary CR Smith, dated 14 January, 1963.

Cheers,

I have an original Certificate of Registration (the document issued by the CAA showing the ownership/registration details of the aircraft) from Concorde G-BOAC. It would have been carried on every flight the aircraft made between about 1986 and 1999.

My favorite items (in no particular order):

The commemorative glasses given to passengers on Pro Air's and Jet Blue's first revenue flights (I was on both airlines' first flights)

A 1/2 inch thick green glass paperweight, made by Boeing to comemmorate Pro Air's first 737-400 aircraft delivery - this was also given out on Pro Air's first flight

My boarding passes from Jet Blue's first flight, signed by David Neeleman, and B6's 2nd flight, signed by Rudy Giulani and Charles Schumer (who were on B6's 2nd flight).

My boarding pass from my one and only flight on Concorde - a subsonic AF ferry flight JFK-DTW

A plastic "TAP Air Portugal" shopping bag. I saved the bag because of the story behind it. I was on a TAP A310 EWR-LIS three years ago. I commented to the flight attendant how much I enjoyed the Portuguese red wine coach passengers were served with dinner. The next morning, as I was deplaning at LIS, she discreetly gave me a bottle of the wine, inside the plastic bag. I had a glass of the wine every night I was in LIS, and the shopping bag brings back memories of a caring flight attendant, and a wonderful vacation.

My wife had a cute lil gem the other day. I was in my in-laws basement and I came across a deck of cards, Delta, that give the exact date, flight number and plane that they were flown on, with my wife's name on it.
