    For my first post here on the forum I would like to show you my vintage flight bag. It isn't exactly from the golden Age but rather from the late 1960s. It comes from a time when flying by air was still an adventure and before air travelling became the mass market it is today.




    I bought this bag to hold my DSLR when out and about street shooting. I liked its retro feel and it takes me back to when my father was stationed in Germany and every flight home my parents would get a Pan Am or TWA flight bag which was, in turn, handed down to my brother and I to keep our stuff in.

    In the end, I didn't use it for my photography (the strap is too flimsy and short) but have instead teamed it up with my childhood Pan Am things I still have, making a little collection.
