Supposed to be a vintage (1930's) poster for Eastern Airlines New York to Miami service "just 10 hours from N.Y.!". Notice something funny? It's a china eastern A320 and logo in the print! I've seen a lot of these replicas, but someone really didn't know what they were doing!

I know I know I'm being reak pedantic here - but I emailed the seller to ask if they were aware:
Hi there - is this meant to be a joke poster? If not - the logo you show is of
China Eastern Airlines who are a Chinese airline, and the aircraft is
of a China Eastern A320 - less than 15 years old and with a maximum non stop
range of about 4 hours - let alone 10!

Not unique in the world of consumercrap. Skyjunk, I mean Skymall used to have "replica" business cards of famous people. Their "Amelia Earhart" business card had a swept-tail Cessna single on it. Amelia died in 1937.
A flight school ad in aviation magazines a few years ago had a painting of a plane that looked a lot like a DC-3 except that it had thirty or forty windows down one side of the cabin. DC-3 had seven. Just your basic hundred-passenger DC-3 I suppose. Another ad of the time had a jet airliner only it had no engines. None under the wings, none on the tail.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
