Starbrook Airlines, the airline that only exists in chocolate, and more...

There are many interesting stories in the aviation industry these days, so interesting that, actually, haven't got the time yet to sit down and write the proper article they deserve. So I thought about sharing a couple of, somewhat lighter, aviation-related stories that might also be of your interest...

For a start the story of this amazing chocolate box I came across the other day....Starbrook Airlines does not exist today...but a Belgian chocolatier has developed a whole range of airline-themed chocolates taking inspiration from the "belle-epoque" of aviation. According to the story in their website, there was actually a "Starbrook Airlines", started by a Belgian in California in the first half of the 20th Century, although I could not find further references to it...

And more vintage (and not so vintage) stuff today, as the great Spanish-language blog "Fronteras" has devoted two very detailed post to those airlines that, for whatever the reason, are no longer flying...you name them: TWA, Varig, Malev, Mexicana, Spanair...

Have a great start of the week!
