A piece of aviation history for your home

In 1974, Berlin’s Tegel Airport (TXL) opened, and at the end of 2020, it closed its doors after nearly five decades. An end that was to be expected with the construction and opening of the Berlin-Brandenburg Airport, but still hurt. After all, plenty of aviation history was written at this location. But now, some pieces of this aviation history are available for your home.

As part of an online auction, the Dutch auction house Troostwijk is selling various items from Tegel Airport. For example, benches of different sizes, so you can recreate the memory of the traditional waiting for boarding at home. Or you simply get a piece of furniture that is not found in every home and thus openly shows your passion for aviation. However, there are also parts from the auction for which probably not everyone has room: snow removal vehicles. These, too, have played their part in aviation history at Tegel Airport. In any case, one thing is clear: every aeronaut will find something here. Moreover, the current prices for a four-seater are affordable (around 100 €).

All in all, a great action. After all you don’t often get the chance to buy real airport furniture for your home. We wish all those who are now bidding good luck with the auction, so that soon a piece of aviation history will move into your home.
