I have started hunting various aviation memorabilia to the regret of my wife. If anyone else crazy enough for that then post you pics here :cool2:

Anything will do - Models, airlines/aviation branded item, aircraft part as furniture/decoration, books etc ...

Let me start with these recent acquisitions - had to fork out R10 at the SPCA Charity shop in Pretoria.

While maybe not the most important bit of Aviation history these must be fairly rare. Inflight glasses from East Africa based Airline Alliance Air. They operated a single SAA Boeing 747SP (ZS-SPA) on routes from Uganda and Tanzania to Heathrow between 1995 and 2000.

This was what the 747SP looked like :shock:

Excellent post Michael. I have a couple of things but packed away deep inside some boxes still in the garage following our house move last year :unsure:
