Good morning! Today, I'm adding photos and a newspaper article that have been sent in my some of our blog viewers. One includes an interior shot of a Convair 580, complete with the multicolor seats in the back, designating the smoking section. Times have changed! Enjoy...:)

Good morning! After many months of dragging my feet, I've finally taken photos of recent finds/acquisitions from EBay and airline collectible shows. Thanks to Arron in MKE for 'getting me moving' on these!
First is a travel poster from the 1960's (there's a series of 6 of these out there, very rare to find!), an AirJet North Central Convair 580 model (AirJet's been out of business for years now) and a specially made North Central DC-3 Cargo model, N28381, I had Keith Oberg at Airways Gifts create for me. Enjoy!
I'm also hoping to add a 'new' North Central reel film that was also found on EBay as soon as it's been converted from reel to disk. My thanks to Captain Keith and Dr. Tim for taking care of this for us and in providing these great treasures of the past for all of us to enjoy!
