Collection of Distinction

My good friend Al Hallonquist has created an online gallery of his aviation autograph collection. While this is only a small portion of Al's entire collection, it is truly a collection of distinction. I am in awe.

The beauty of his collection is that he has put together these signed gems through his own efforts by meeting or writing to the aviation pioneers... very few pieces were purchased.

Al's love of the subject matter shows and has created a collection that contains some real museum pieces. This is what "collecting" should be all about.
