Corgi 20th Anniversary Aviation Archive Series

Taking place in the same year as the Centenary of the Royal Air Force, Corgi's popular Aviation Archive range boasts a commemoration of its own and marks the 20th anniversary of the first release in this popular series. Back in 1998, aviation enthusiasts were intrigued by the announcement of a new range of 1:144th scale die-cast metal aircraft models from Corgi, which presented the collector with a number of iconic aircraft types from the world of military and civilian aviation.

Chronologically, the first release in the Aviation Archive series was model number 47101, a Douglas C-47A Skytrain named the "Fassberg Flyer", released to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Berlin Airlift and marking one of the most famous aircraft to take part in "Operation Vittles". To mark the 20th Anniversary of the Aviation Archive range, Corgi is proud to announce the inclusion of AA38209, Douglas C-47A Skytrain 315208 "Fassberg Flyer", US Air Force, Berlin Airlift, 1948 in the range, which presents the collector with a magnificent new 1:72 scale representation of the very first model in this series.
