    Found a 1940 airline poster, any information wanted.

    While going through a bunch of old boxes in our attic I found this poster in with some other junk. I have no idea how it got there, it's history, or anything about the airline. Maybe my mother got it when she lived in London in the 50's.

    If any of you can provide more information, I would be very interested. Is it rare and should be in a museum, or is it worth anything? And what about the airline, did it morph into BOAC?

    Thanks

    I don't know about the claims it's making though... 'Fast', 'Comfortable' or 'Safe' are words that don't really come to mind when describing the Heinkel

    That aside, flying it without a bombload almost feels like an old airliner, I think the earlier versions without the stepless cockpit were sometimes used in that capacity.

    Doesn't feel right to me.....were the Germans worried about "copywrite" or copyright in 1940
