Can anyone tell me when the last time a magazine did the last reviews before the airline merged with AA?? If my memory serves me Airways did one sometime in 2000. Also, Does anyone know of any models that you can still buy?? I had a old 757 mdel where the engines spun. TWA was my favorite airline and I am hoping some models and former airline reviews in the magazines might be availible. I apologize if this is posted in the wrong thread.

There is a ton of TW memorabilia out there. I myself have a decent amount of items thanks to a former TW F/A. Everything from models to safety cards still exist.



The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!

I have a TWA 747 and L1011 safety card. A oropeller drink stirrer, a napking with big Ben, Colosseum other European monuments on it.

I also have a prized TWA blanket. it is dark blue with maroon TWA logos on one side, and the reverse is Maroon with dark blue TWA logos. Rather nice and thick and has help up great since I got it in the 80s.

Not sure of the date (I was thinking early '01??), but both Airways and Airlines did TW pieces either right at the end, or just after the merger w/AA. IIRC, one cover had a night shot of an L1011 with a pushback tug hooked up, and the other was an air-to-air shot of a Connie...

Separately, but maybe of interest: The latest Airways "Classics" is on TW, and is available now on their website...

The one I am referring to is the Airways article featuring the 757 on the cover.

My 2,300 number was based on those TWA items listed within Collectables > Transportation > Aviation > Airlines > TWA.

Your search was for "TWA" for all of Ebay. Some of these 6,300 items are not airline related.

For instance Trane airconditioners with "TWA" in the model number.

Yes, you are correct, "some" of the items are not airline related, but as you can see 99% of them are. I always find it much more comprehensive to search all of Ebay instead of limiting to "Collectables > Transportation > Aviation > Airlines >" when looking for airline memorabilia.

Well, I would hope so, since it just came out.

I used to own a few original TWA and Pan Am stock certificates - I bought them decades ago, just for smiles and grins, knowing that they would not be worth much after both companies went under.

I gave them to a flying club that I was a member of - they framed them and hung them up on their walls as statements of "remember when...."

This issue of Airways Classics is a new magazine, with completely different articles than the earlier magazine. At least 95% of the photographs in this issue are new, too.

I've got over 1,000 different things from my TWA days (1996-2001), a few adorn my travel agency's office and the rest are in storage in my ouse in Utah. Anything from napkins and swizzle sticks up to 1/100 models and signage off of the jetways, and a couple of HUGE slanted US flag stickers that were applied to the top of the 747 tails. There's a lot of stuff available out there as well.


Next trip: SLC-LAX-JFK-LAX-SLC on AA, gotta say goodbye to my beloved 762!

You can find those on eBay and at the local memorabilia shows for virtually nothing... However, I find them to be quite interesting--especially some of the older PA certificates that were quite intricate.

If you ever find yourself in the Kansas City area, there's a TWA museum at the FBO at MKC with a gift shop choc full of memorabilia. And across the field is the National Airline History Museum, which has some more stuff, but not necessarily TWA or airline-issued (some are).
