Mine would be from my timetable collection:

United Airlines timetable: 1/31/73
This was the UA timetable that was effective when I was born.  Smile

Allegheny Airlines timetable: 9/5/79
This would be the last timetable for Allegheny, which would become US Air. The front cover boldly states: "Starting October 28, Allegheny's growing into US Air." The inside of the timetable feature ads promoting the new airline.

United Airlines timetable: 10/1/84
Front cover has a beautiful aerial view the two WTC towers.
How terribly ironic.

United Airlines timetable: 9/5/01
This would be the last paper timetable to be printed by United Airlines. It was also the timetable that was effective during the 9/11 terror attacks.

Pan Am timetable: November, 1973
As with most Pan Am timetables of the early '70's, this shows scheduled service to: Beirut, Lebanon; Damascus, Syria; Tehran, Iran; and Karachi, Pakistan.
My my my, how things have changed.

I have boxes of old timetables from now defunct airlines like Eastern, Braniff, National, Pan Am, Hughes Air West, Southern, Western, etc., etc.. I love to pull them out from time to time and reminisce. I also have lots of memorabilia, pamphlets, pictures, playing cards, wings, etc., etc. from long ago as well as the present.

I would say probably the tickets and boarding passes that I've saved over the years, which includes a lot of "firsts", such as "first Business Class boarding pass" or "first flight to this city or to that country", etc. I also used to build model airplanes (well I guess I still do but have'nt had the time lately) which are preserved in storage. I also value my airline expreiences... they always make for good stories.  Big thumbs up


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Some timetables {I just ordered from overseas}:

1. Ansett Airlines Timetable Number 45, August 1, 1979. Was the AN issue when I was born. Even has a fare supplement!

2. Qantas Airways Timetable effective August 1, 1982. Was the QF international issue about a year and a half after international operations commenced in February 1981. Contains flight schedules including the ex- Townsville routings: TSV-AKL nonstop B747-200B; TSV-HNL-LAX B747 SP; TSV-DRW-SIN-BAH-LHR B747-200B. Oh, and a QF B747-200B bag, and a QF lapel badge in the shape of the winged kangaroo, circa 1981.

3. My last AN boarding pass, and an Ansett Cricket Test Series 1998 badge given to me by a group of AN flight attendants mum had met.

I've got lots of souvenirs etc, but they are my favourites.

We have various things from National(original): Many decks of cards(still in their plastic wrapping) glasses with the sunburst on them, a stationary set that was on board in the 1970's, a menu from the MIA-LHR flight, it has everything in three languages, serving spoons from the LHR flight that were used in 1st class(actually I got these from a PanAm flight to FRA), the china dishes that were used domestically in First Class for the entrees, stir sticks for cocktails that have the Sunburst on the top. Various liquor miniatures that have a label on the back that says, "Bottled for National Airlines".

We also have every First Class ammenity kit that Pan Am handed out in First Class from the time we went from National to Pan Am. Each of them has never been opened, and still contains each of the original items. We also have many of the kits that were handed out in Clipper Class. Various menus from First Class-these have pictures of the various planes that Pan Am flew and locations. Many of them were milestones in Aviation history(ex. the first passenger 747), the original China Clipper, etc.

Most valued, and most valuable, is my original copy of a July 1929 copy of the TAT/PRR/Santa Fe brochure/timetable. Valued because my dad gave it to me before he died and valuable because of it's rarity.

Look for a reproduction of it in a book soon, God willing.



Quit calling an airport ramp "Tarmac" and a taxiway "runway".

A complete original Ozark 727-2D4Adv flight manual. OZ ordered these birds, took delivery, and immediately sold them to Pan Am without carrying a single revenue pax. (There is some dispute as to whether or not one flew a charter for OZ) The high cost of three engines, three in the cockpit, and the availability of the MD-80 sealed their fate.

Both of these a/c are still flying for FedEx.
