I love this guy. 

You probably know someone just like him. Since he was kid, he enjoyed flying. And over the years, he has kept a collection of airline ephemera - brochures, route maps, socks. Most of it came from the airline he flew most as a child, British Overseas Airways Corporation. His favorite plane? The Boeing 747. 

"The style that airline had, there was a sense of something very modern," he says in the Conde Nast Traveler-produced video below. "It was so huge, and so different. And it had two levels. And a spiral staircase. And swivel chairs.

No doubt it takes someone eccentric to get two identical BOAC tattoos. But what's great about this video is how human it makes this man. He does not seem eccentric at all. He is just a guy - like most of us - who loves to fly.
