RIP Herb Kelleher (87), founder of Southwest airlines. Arguably one of the most charismatic airline CEOs. Our favorite example of his innovativeness was when he arm wrestled another airline executive over a trademark dispute. He wanted to save the legal fees, even though he had practiced law. Kelleher did not win the arm wrestling match, but he did grow Southwest to the largest domestic carrier in the U.S.
Our new biplane airplane, warbird airplane, and helicopter decanters are a functional unique work of art. The aviation decanters are crafted by skilled artisans with hand blown glass. Use your airplane or helicopter decanter for your favorite liquor or simply set on display as a glass art collectible.
Tailwinds has a great selection of wood airplane propellers that are fantastic aviation decor. Choose from 47 inch propellers to 6 foot propellers. Wonderful for an aviator man cave or aviatrix she shed.
Tailwinds has just added some exciting new aviation wall clocks and aviator desk and mantel clocks that make great pilot gifts for your favorite aviator or airplane enthusiast. These high quality clocks, like our Control Tower Wall Clock, are inspired from replicas from a bygone era. Or, select our World War II Altimeter Clocks in a wall, desk or mantel size, that are crafted from metal, not inexpensive plastic. And there is our Airship Wall Clock that is an exact replica, updated with quartz clock movement, of a 1930s Airship. An ideal gift for a collector!
