Among the more predictable high yielding cards, three stand out as less
usual subjects. Two UK collectors drove a large size B&W card of a BEA
Herald at Sumburgh to near £40.
A rare set of Air India 747 cabin
crew/interior cards went for yet more, £67 , even though a close up interior
view of 747 windows would normally be a “most boring postcard” candidate.
Anglo-Norwegian interest competed for a Braathens issue DH Heron (£38).
Singapore is a strong outpost of card
collectors both of aviation and local history and these came together on some
cards of the first flights in the then colony as shown in the Pioneer Pages
feature. While rarer Concorde cards
continue in demand there is some evidence that the Airbus A.380 is attaining
early cult status. The latest airline to feature an advance card is Lufthansa.
Hopefully there will not be a parallel between the commercial success of this
latest Toulouse product and its predecessor. Meanwhile
the first airline issue Boeing 787
card has appeared from All Nippon in Japan.
