Description
Houston, Texas. The 1940 Air Terminal Museum will host the 22nd annual Houston Airline Collectibles Show on Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Vintage memorabilia – wings, posters, aircraft models, china, books, and much more – will be bought, sold and traded. Weather permitting, vintage aircraft will be displayed on the Museum’s ramp during the show. Admission to the show is $7 for adults and $3 for children. Lunch will be available from the Flaming Patties food truck.

Airline memorabilia are popular collectibles and demand is strong among aviation aficionados, industry employees and collectors. Rare items in good condition tend to retain their value over time. For some collectors, airline memorabilia brings back a time when jet travel meant elegant service with real china and cloth napkins. For others, it reminds them of a favorite trip or an airliner that they flew. Some people collect everything issued by a single airline; some focus solely on pilots’ wings.

Collecting vintage airline memorabilia is not an expensive hobby. Playing cards, swizzle sticks, post cards and advertising are inexpensive items with which to start. Some rarer collectibles can become pricey, and very large models command sums in the thousands. Airline collectibles shows attract crowds even though much buying and trading of collectibles has moved online. Much of the fun is in swapping stories as much as swapping items.

The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is located on the west side of Hobby Airport, just off Telephone Road at 8325 Travelair, Houston, Texas 77061. For more information, please contact the Museum at info@1940airterminal.org , or telephone 713/454-1940.
We hope to see you at the Museum!
