Pilgrim Airlines Acrylic Snowflake Ornament
This ornament recalls Pilgrim Airlines of New London/Groton, Connecticut, formed in 1962 to carry commuters to New York Idlewild (later Kennedy) airport. Expansion from the initial single route and single-engine Pipers came with routes across New England and eastern Canada, and a fleet enlarged with the De Havilland Canada DHC-6 and later Fokker F.27 turboprops, plus an F.28 twin jet.
Atlantic Air of Connecticut purchased Pilgrim in 1986 to create Business Express Airlines, a year after Pilgrim itself had acquired NewAir of New Haven, Connecticut.
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.
