The safety card may be, on first glance, the most functional of the seatback pocket literature, and yet in the hands of the dedicated aviation enthusiast, it makes for a surprisingly efficient souvenir of the flight, as it states airline, aircraft type, and even has a floor plan or other visual representation of the ship.
This unique book is not just a collection of airline safety cards, it is also the memories of the collector who picked them up on his diverse travels. Guy Van Herbruggen is the author of five books about aviation history – a three volume history of the Flying Tiger Line, the definitive history of the MD-11, and the story of the Corsair fleet of 747s. For Your Safety is his most personal, and his most intriguing yet. Buckle up!
