This Week’s eBay Find


United DC-8 Commemorative Ashtray

Now that it appears I’m officially collecting aircraft memrobilia, I have to start clearing out my office to make room.

This week, I picked up this ashtray and a little snooping around the Net has gotten me really excited.

The ashtray commemorates the start of United Airlines’ scheduled DC-8 service in September 1959.  On the side, it is imprinted with the name “R. A. Miller” but Google doesn’t lead me to much except a listing for a company of that name that produces avionics.
