Historical Aviation Treasures

Sun Feb 19, 2012 1:24 am

Hi Everyone,

I don't usually post in this section but I wanted to share with the rest of the airliner community some of the neat historical treasures I acquired.

The story:

During my teens at my grandparents anniversary party, I was introduced to an elder gentlemen who was an engineer at Avro Canada during the Avro Arrow days. We got talking and got into some good conversation about the aircraft's history and the overall demise of the project. Years later when I was in college, I was told that he had passed. His wife mentioned to my mother that he left for me several items from his personal aviation collection. I had only met this generous man once in my life and he has given me these treasures of aviation history.

Here is just a sample of some of the items:

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results
