A Word about the AeroAntique Private Collection

A Word about the AeroAntique Private Collection

First up:  Many thanks to our fellow aviation enthusiasts as we begin our first weeks of launch!  Our mission is to keep historical military aviation technologies alive by putting artifacts in the hands of those who appreciate them, and that mission is well on its way thanks to you. Next up:  Like many of you, we have been collecting artifacts like these for years.  While they may be displayed in homes or places of work, these artifacts have lacked a venue for viewing by fellow enthusiasts, until now. Hence, our "Private Collection". In the AeroAntique Private Collection, you will see...
