Default Chicago Pictures

My first time attending this local show.. there was a very nice turn out with a line waiting to get in.. The first three pics are models I re-acquired having previously owned them, and lucky me I only paid slightly above original retail for the Lufthansa 748!! that is the beauty of going to the shows you can find rare gems at good prices!

Nice grabs from that convention. Excited to attend Airliners International next summer in Chicago. Seems like you can find just about any model you want at a convention like this

Thanks for posting pics and glad you were able to find some gems. Surprised by the AM purchase! The Lufthansa 747-8 is a great find! One on Ebay ending today that is up to $760!

Chicago Airliner Show was a good one, met CrownVic and had breakfast with him. Some of my favorite vendors were there, MTS, DG Pilot, and Mr Brian Ward owner of Planey Speaking out of Campbell CA. The next show is May 7th 2022, at the Holiday Inn in Elk Grove Village. Then following that June 23-25 2022 this show is the big one Airliners International Chicago 2022 plan to attend if possible show will be at the Hilton Rosemont/O'Hare.. Visit Airlinersinternational.ord for special discount room information. over 200 vendor tables of glorious Airliner/Airplane things to see * touch * buy..
Come on collectors make plans to attend...
