    Some books about modern war planes and those from WWII.
    Phonecards, metal plane models from Schabak and Herpa Wings (mostly Luxair and Cargolux, but one Icelandair and a french Concorde too).
    A few Matchbox Skybusters. Some plane magazines. Adhesive stickers.

    Default What I collect . . .

    I collect (& try to build when I have time) plastic airliner models mostly, but I also have books, magazines, a few timetables, photographs, and, here's the weird one: a few actual airliner exterior lights! (used on the DC-8, 727, Caravelle)

    I collect pretty much everything:

    Safety Cards (although I stopped taking them off the planes about 6 years ago.....I just either buy the ones I need now off of Ebay, or print their covers off the online Safety Card websites like Planespotter.de)

    In-Flight Magazines, boarding passes as well as the Luggage Destination Tags from my flights.

    I have also @ 27 1:400 scale airliners.

    Edit: I also have a set of High Altitude Charts!

    I collect all sorts really

    I have a smallish collection of Safety Cards, Luggage tags (the ones with the green stripe and the IATA code of the destination), I also keep my Boarding passes.

    I also have some of the flight paperwork from a BA B757 flight from Barcelona to Heathrow. It contains the Flightplan, some Iberia chart in Spanish, a wad of meterological charts/sheets and a postcard which the Captain gave me.

    I have also acquired the front face of a Radio Altimeter, a B737 fuel quantity indicator, 2 Underwater Acoustic beacons which attach onto the bright orange flight recorders and a horizontal gyro. (these parts were acquired through Work Experience).

    And finally I have just bought a couple of charts! And no, I don't plan to stop there!

    I collect airline spoons, I also have lots of knifes and forks by chance. I would gladly deal with anyone who has spoons to trade.

    My collection is visible at this address http://airlinespoon.free.fr

    PS I hate this lousy plastic stuff

    Anybody collect aircraft memorabilia? Like people collecting things from famous boats/ships, like the titanic, carpathia etc...Maybe a boarding pass off the lockerby 747 (Morbid, but no different from ships). A peice off the spruce goose? A peice of Me-262 that was the first to shoot down an aircraft...Something off the light plane that had Buddy Holly in it...That sort of thing? Not particularly interested in collecting this stuff myself, just wondering why no-one seems to go there.

    Probably because of all the documentation and legalities surrounding historical memorabilia. Plus, its expensive as hell too, even moreso when you learn that the propellor blade you spent thousands of dollars on that supposedly belonged to the Enola Gay/Memphis Belle/Spirit of St. Louis/etc had forged historical documentation.

    Just an example; I'm too cheap to start up a collection of historical aviation memerobilia, as cool as it would be. Especially when my collection of pilot wings costs me about $50-80 per set of wings. And while I DO collect propeller/rotor blades, they're all given to me for free from various mechanics I know.
