Complimentary ashtrays from Air France

Each year, more than 100,000 aviation fans make their way north from Seattle to Mukilteo to visit the Future of Flight Aviation Center and take a tour of the Boeing commercial jet assembly plant.


The tour is mighty impressive, and so is the Aviation Gallery, which features the nose section of a Boeing 727, airplane engines and other airplane parts, and lots of interactive exhibits.


Until April 20th, the Aviation Gallery is also home to an impressive exhibition of memorabilia from Air France, one of Boeing’s longtime customers.  On display are luxurious table settings, multi-course in-flight menus and examples of  gift items from the airline’s early years,  such as these complimentary ashtrays and this cool lunchbox set.
