Make sure you have a few hours free before continuing with this story. You might also want to make sure you have a few extra dollars to spend on some airline goodies! Noted AvGeek, photographer, and good friend Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren has recently decided a big chunk of his airline collection needs to go. And guys, its a huge haul.

There’s something for every AvGeek here: post cards, menus, paper ads, posters, bag tags, matchbooks, route maps, timetables, and even a small number of vintage hand bags…including a few Pan Am. And that’s only part of it – all in all there’s over 2,000 items for sale.

Easier than eBay, don’t have to travel to the big shows, and I know where he lives if something goes bad on you. There’s lots of photos here but that’s only about 75% of the collection: the full list is located here on a detailed spreadsheet.

If you see something you like, shoot him an email ([email protected]) and let a bit of airline history into your home! For me… I am not quite ready to give up anything in my personal collection, although mine is not as amazing as Jeremy’s!

Back in February we showed you that Continental Airlines was looking at having a retro livery and it has been chosen: The Blue Skyway.

The livery is to celebrate Continental Airlines’ 75th anniversary which happens on July 15th.

Continental Employees voted this to be their celebratory livery which was first introduced in the 1940’s.
