Reading the NetLetter #1387 and the article on pins in "Reader Submitted Photos" has Allan Gray submitting these photos -

I also have a few pins I've collected over the years. Just not Air Canada & TCA but other airlines as well.

Gerry Ireland has sent in a couple of his pins with this message -

tmb l1011 pin tail pinI had the pleasure of flying on the new AC L-1011-500 and they gave us a pin on the inaugural flight. It is in a plastic cover with some text and signed By Claude Taylor. I think it was 1973, the route was from YVR-LHR. I was a supervisor with CPAL then (god that was long ago) and a manager from AC invited me. Included with the L1011 pin was a tail pin from Gerry. 

I was with CP from 1967 - 1987, left and went to work for Air New Zealand at YVR 1989-2001. NZ closed the base (Sept 11 and all). NZ returned service in 2007 and I went back to work for them until 2009, between summer contract work. It was 40 years, and time to go.

Regards, Gerry
