Default Received a Pacmin 1/200 Scale Icelandair Boeing 757-200 Model Airplane Over Lunch

Greetings All,

My father in law has planned an extensive trip to visit Iceland in late September.

Coincidentally last week, my father in law and I had lunch together with one of his old friends and co-worker from Boeing/McDonnell Douglas/NASA and one of his sons.

While enjoying a nice lunch and conversation, the son tells my father in-law that he was very happy that he's going to visit Iceland and that he himself works for Icelandair.

He then takes a box out of his backpack and gives it to me. The box contained a PacMin 1/200 Scale Boeing 757-200 Model Airplane, at the table while we were all having lunch.

I was stunned, to say the least!

He's also going to send me a Pacmin Icendair Boeing 757-200 Model Airplane in their New Hekla-Aurora Livery, like the one in the attached picture, in a couple of weeks.

Never thought that having lunch with one of my father in law's aviation friends, would ever lead to me receiving multiple PacMin model airplanes.



Writing a thank you letter as we speak, to the man's son.

Regards to all.

Robert

That's a lovely story Robert, and a beautiful model. Over the years, I've received one or two models that way, such kindness is not too common these days. I have a 1/100 model of the same aircraft, I really like the colour scheme. Thanks for sharing the occasion.

Neil.

Nice one mate, I love the Icelander 757s, and the Aurora livery is something to behold!

Hi crownvic,

I actually received a duplicate model from Icelandair's corporate office, so did not need two (2) of the same model in my collection.

Hence, the reason that one (1) was recently sold.
