Flight Paperwork, DKR To JFK (Offer For Collector)

Mon Nov 10, 2008 2:30 am

It seems that airliner enthusiasts will collect almost anything, so how about this....

Flying from Dakar, the Senegal aeronautics department, called ASECNA, puts together a really cool flight packet. There's weather information, NOTAMS, etc., etc. It comes in a yellow cardstock folder, "CONDITIONS METEOROLOGIQUES EN ROUTE ET AUX AERODROMES" that looks like something out of the 1940s.

I've always hated throwing these folders away, so last time through I decided to hang onto it, thinking somebody on ANet might wish to have one.

In fact I have the ENTIRE collection of paperwork from a recent flight from DKR to JFK (minus a few proprietary things). Weather reports, color turbulence charts, maps, the flight plan, a fuel receipt -- about 30 pages of stuff. The folder is also autographed by the crew.

It's kind of a neat keepsake, I think, and insightful for anybody who wonders what the paperwork looks like for a trans-oceanic flight. If you'd like to have it, shoot me an email and I'd be happy to send it to you.

Is it legal to sell that sorta stuff? I ask because I have some ExpressJet engine Mechanical books that I'd like to sell.
