Just a reminder to all of the EWR/JFK/LGA locals about the airline collectible show on Saturday. Click http://mrpanam.freeyellow.com/ewr.html or http://mrpanam.freeyellow.com/ewr.html for more information.
The 2002 Newark Airport Airline Collectible Show & Sale will be held at:
Sheraton, Newark Airport
128 Frontage Road
The show will take place on Saturday, September 7, 2002 from 0900 to 1600. Admission to the show is $6.00, payable at the door.
Call the Sheraton at 973-690-5500 for hotel room reservations or directions to the show. Book early at the hotel for special room rates. Mention the Tri-State Airline Historical Society Airline Collectible Show when booking.
There will be a slide show and auction on Friday evening, September 6, 2002, at 1900 featuring professional quality photographs of airliners from around the world, past and present. All are invited to attend.
The hotel operates a free van shuttle to/from Newark Airport's monorail, which serves EWR's terminals and rent-a-car locations. The airport can be reached from Manhattan using the Olympia Trails airport express bus, and from Penn Station in downtown Newark via either New Jersey Transit bus #62 or the NJT Airlink bus. The monorail, or "Airtrain" has recently been extended to connect with NJT and Amtrak trains at a new station on the ex-PRR "Northeast Corridor" line.
Airline memorabilia shows feature a large variety of commercial airline items. These include crew insignia, aircraft models, books, magazines, postcards, photographs and slides, dining service items, ticket jackets, timetables, kiddie wings, baggage tags, menus and even air sickness bags (preferably unused). We encourage the public to bring any unwanted airline items to the show. If you wish to trade, sell or simply want more information about your items, someone at the show will be able to help. Chances are that you can find a good home for that old airline uniform, the timetables and aircraft postcards that the airlines used to give away, those old Kodachrome slides of airplanes taken at the airport or the junior wings you earned on your first flight are of real interest to collectors.
Hope to see some of you there.
