Vintage Airline Wing

Flying the Branded Skies is a neat little website by Cameron Fleming with an extensive collection of vintage airline wings.

As the site explains, "There was a time just about every airline had junior wings for its younger fliers. Today, this tradition has fallen by the wayside for the most part. Still, it is estimated that there are more than 900 different kinds of junior wings." You can browse 252 of those wings at the site.
