My Planet Airways 727 over wing exit is pretty cool, but my fav is probably the 50+ Delta safety cards ranging from DC props, convair's, to the 747.

My favorite memorabilia are dishes from Iraqi Airways and their ticket issued in Saadoun Streeet, Baghdad. The back cover shows a 747. I love that tray and cups and nice dished all in green and white.

Woow, what a collection. Beautiful! It makes me wonder why are those tags so boring today. I know they are different, but if they could only add some color on them, it would be much nicer.

Not exactly impressive, but a KL boarding card from 1982 (I think). Old airport code for Oslo, a very floppy sheet of paper, a mix of handwritten and printed.  Smile

All very nice people! But my sister has the most prominent and special thing ever gotten on a flight: her name. My parents and I were flying MP to FAO, and the F/A was called Laura. Because she was so caring, especially for my mother who was rather worried (4 weeks after MP crash at FAO), and my parents loved the name, my sister was named after this F/A.

I actually don't know if my parents ever told the F/A. I'm going to ask them.
Never ask somebody if he's a pilot. If he is, he will let you know soon enough!

My favorite is my grandmother's TWA Frequent Flying Bonus Program card from the 1990s.

Also where I work there are two pairs of classic first class seats from the '80s, they still have ashtrays built into the armrests. They are believed to be from TWA 727s but we aren't completely sure.

At Airliners International in EWR this weekend, I was able to pick up quite a few bag tags, including about fifteen different cities from Western Airlines (late 1970s and early 1980s), eight or nine different cities from Air Florida, about thirty different cities from Delta (late 1970s), and, best of all, three cities from Pacific Northern, from the early 1960s.

Those of you who didn't attend Airliners International missed out on a great show!
