We are excited to offer this spectacular and original ABA poster for aviation enthusiasts and collectors. The poster, which depicts a Douglas DC-3 taking off at Bromma Airport, is from 1945.
In 1937, ABA became the second European operator of the Douglas DC-3, following KLM. This acquisition opened up opportunities for the airline to offer "longer flights," such as those to Moscow. Two years later, in 1939, ABA began marking their aircraft with the name Swedish Air Lines.
After World War II ended, ABA upgraded their aircraft from the converted B-17 to the DC-4. ABA was established in 1924 as Aktiebolaget Aerotransport and later became a part of Scandinavian Airlines.
The poster is an exquisite piece of artwork designed by Nikolai Kowarsky, one of two ABA posters he created. This particular poster is extremely rare and is sure to be a valuable addition to any aviation collection.
While the poster shows some signs of wear, such as edge wear, pinholes, and scratches, it is in good condition overall. Additionally, it has been professionally mounted on linen for preservation.
