Default Non-Current Aircraft Tie Pins

Why?

I don't need to know you flew (insert aircraft here) without speaking to you.

Only so far as it speaks to mental status of the OP.

Debating boxers versus briefs would be preferable. At least there's some scientific evidence to link the former with better fertility.

Somebody resents the fact that he didn't fly fighters.

Iím going to wear a Dornier 728 pin from now on.

Maybe a Boeing 2707.

Hell I wonder if someone makes one in the shape of the shuttle from Airplane 2.

Probably havenít seen a Shorts pin.

Most of the pilots I saw flying that stupid looking flying rat wore bags over their heads

I'm curious... Does the OP have the same aversion the stickers and bag tags that have adorned flight kits for decades? Or the GA owner who has his tail number embroidered on his hat and polo? GMAB... Some things are just inherently a part of aviation. Having pride in your background is fine. Shoot, maybe consider it an opportunity to strike up a conversation instead of a justification to spite someone you haven't even met.

I was flying civilian and had on a TWA polo shirt. Captain dead heading in uniform flipped his badge over to show me his Pan Am badge. We had a great conversation about the old days.
