I came across this link about someone who is obsessed with Pan Am memorabilia, and thought I would throw it out there for discussion and comments. I guess my obsession would be collecting Braniff International memorabilia from the 1960's and 1970's. Anybody else?

Here is the biggest collection of PanAm items I have ever seen.

The collection of serving pieces, china and glassware is particularly impressive under the PanAm Party link.

As far as Braniff, I agree with you. I have been collecting Braniff items. Here are some of the collection.

Author George Cearley, Jr., was a big fan of Braniff. His book on the Boeing 707 features quite a few pictures and photos of early Braniff 707-227s, with a 720-027 or two thrown in, all in the pre-Girard markings. He also wrote a book on Braniff. Unfortunately, people are asking obscene prices for these rare books, but keep looking - you might get lucky and find one at a reasonable price.

An interesting little tidbit - the L-149 Constellation preserved at Santa Cruz, Bolivia, is none other than former Braniff's N2520B, the subject of Corgi's 1:144 scale model, making that item a highly worthwhile and interesting collectible for any Braniff fan. I have it - it's a very nice model. They appear every once in a while on Evil Bay, and if you can wait, you should be able to pick one up at a reasonable price.
