Vintage Airplane & Globe Mobile

Three airplanes that wrote history encircle a globe that recalls their era.  The Lockheed Vega "Winnie Mae" set records flying around the world in 1931.  The legendary PanAm China Clipper was the epitome of luxury and long distance travel in the late 1930's.  The Douglas DC-3 was the workhorse of the skies for decades, it's become an icon in the history of aviation.  The DC-3 served every American airline in the 1930's as well as most European ones.  No need to refuel these three aircraft flying around the world as it appeared in 1930.  An exact reproduction of a 1930 world globe, it shows the nations of the world by their names and borders of the era.  Airplanes are made of hand-polished aluminum.  The globe is made following the traditional method of the day, painstakingly applying twelve paper gores to the sphere. An ideal gift for an aviation enthusiast, history buff, world traveler or daydreamer.
