Saab 340 Round Acrylic Ornament
During the late 1970s, Saab of Sweden began design development of a regional airliner powered by turboprop engines, targeting the 30-34 passenger capacity market for its product offering. U.S. manufacturer Fairchild was bright in as a manufacturing partner, bringing that firm's experience producing and selling the 19-seat Metro commuter airliners.
First airline service with the 340 occurred in 1984, and the type rapidly became the best-selling regional airliner with 459 built between 1984 and 1999. The type proved popular with airlines operating codeshare services for larger partners, the 340's cabin amenities and baggage capacity being well-suited to connecting hub operations.
An artistic interpretation of the aircraft’s side and top views is laser-engraved with exacting detail onto a round acrylic crystal ornament, measuring approximately 3.4 inches in diameter, 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 airplanes 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.
