The Wings Beneath My Wind

38. BAE Systems

Now for the eagerly awaited final part of our Aerospace Collection.
When I first saw this 70th year Anniversary commemorative mug, I was immediately transported back to my childhood. I swear I had some wallpaper once which was festooned with warplanes and weaponry, so I formed an ibstant emotional connection with it straight off. It’s design and typography is very much in keeping with traditional aviation themes and lends a it a very regal and dare I say it, ‘British’ feel.
As for the mug family, It’s quite like nothing I’ve seen before. After combing the web for inspiration, I’m going to settle on the type ‘Funnel’ (although that doesn’t take into account it’s juttling handle!)  It’s a true one-off.
As for BAE, what do they NOT do:
Maintenance Services |  Modernisation Services  |    Supply Chain Services Training Services  |  Engineering and Information Services  | Facilities and Energy Services |    Availability Services…….

Lastly I’d just like to say a big thank you to the kind Spotter who went above and beyond the call of duty to bring us these Aerospace mug shots. It would be fair to say it was from word of mouth and viewing this humble site which inspired them to get rheir camera out & get involved. It’s very much appreciated.
