Britt Airways Acrylic Snowflake Ornament
This ornament recalls Britt Airways of Terre Haute, Indiana. Organized in 1964 as Vercoa Air Service to connect small cities in Indiana and Illinois with Chicago, the airline became Britt in 1975 following an ownership change. An early participant in the Allegheny Airlines commuter system, the airline expanded from its initial Beech 99 regional airliners to turboprop Fairchild Metros, and Fairchild FH-227s, along with BAC 1-11 jets. The airline was acquired by People Express Airlines in 1985, and eventually became a Continental Express carrier after Continental acquired People Express.
An artistic interpretation of the airline's brand is laser-engraved with exacting detail onto a cut acrylic snowflake crystal ornament, measuring approximately 3.4 inches (8.6 cm) between opposite points, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. For best display clarity, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the ornament, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.
As a gift, or as a treat for yourself, these are a perfect way to add your favorite airlines of the past to your today! Use them to decorate for the holidays, or to brighten up your desk, office, or special area of your home or work space all year long.
