Years ago (1960's !!!!) I wrote to Aer Lingus for "stuff". They sent me a set of black & white photos of their most important types up to that time (DH84. DC-3, F-27, Viscount 808, 707-348C,720 - 048,737-248,1-11 208 and an artist's impression of the forthcoming 747-148). I still have these. I also have three 1960's wall charts oproduced by Aer Lingus for school use - one on weather and the other two being a cutaway of the 720 and a cutaway of the 1-11. I tried my luck again in 1971 but they told me that they were updating their material and I should try again in the near future. I did, in 1974, and got the same answer. As far as I am aware, nothing of a similar nature has ever been produced by Aer Lingus since. They also produced, in the 60's, a set of small leaflets on the three Irish airports they served, Dublin, Cork and Shannon.
