Airmail covers are not always collected as flown mail but instead document special events such as the dedication of airports or the flights of the U.S. Navy airships Akron and Macon. Other related objects of interest can range from magazine ads to timetables to promotional brochures. Aviation ephemera and memorabilia enrich the collecting of airmail cards and covers by giving a fuller picture of the history and romance of the development of aviation and airmail.
