Historical Aviation Treasures

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.

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:
