National Aeronautical Collection Guide (circa 1970)

I love aircraft. Growing up on and around military airbases tends to make one interested in the subject of aviation in a small or big way. Check out these samples below from the archival guidebook for the National Aeronautical Collection (based in Ottawa, Canada).

Post script: The museum is now called the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.

Went there years ago...really blown away by the Luftwaffe jets and Hitler's car.

Yes, Luftwaffe jets are in the book: The Messerschmitt 163, which was, more correctly, a rocket plane; and the Heinkel 162.
