Not sure if this is the proper place for this or if anyone would even have an interest but thought I'd post some nice aircraft ads. These contain nice artwork or photographs. If no interest please feel free to delete.

These are lovely. Pity the days of this kind of ad are long gone.

Indeed. They haven't been uploaded properly, it seems.

American Bosch Arma Corp space flight ads.
These are the work of the great Frank Tinsley, who did a whole series for that company.

Keep meaning to thank you for posting these. Its so good to see these artworks, certainly modern advertisements have nothing compared to these.

This is the typical giveaway card file handed out by companies from their booth during air shows or exhibits.
Fantastic document, though I'm not quite sure it qualifies as "Advertising", which to me is included in magazines and uses laudatory text and catchphrases and slogans to promote the product rather than facts.

This being said, if you have more of these and choose to do a "Company leaflets and fact files" topic out of it, I'm ALL FOR IT!!! ;D

I considered all of it marketing but I see your point. This will be reserved for magazine advertising.
Of course I was only giving you my opinion about this question, which may not necessarily be that of other mods, or RAP, who started this topic.
