Up Safety Cards BRU Airport About Me Links

Besides taking pictures of aircraft, I also collect the safety cards which you can find on board. You know those plastic or cardboard cards that say what to do in case of a crash-landing or ditching. Remember NEVER to panic ;-)

The list is sorted alphabetically on the name of the company. For each company, the cards have been sorted on 'Type'. To avoid long loading times of the page, I had to split the list into multiple subpages. To go to the thumbnails, click on one of the bars above. Then just click on a thumbnail to get a bigger picture. All dimensions are in centimeter. This list has been updated on 06/11/2017.

Lockheed TriStar cards

You know, sometimes those cards can be fun... Look for the humour in this image taken from the Air Finland 757-200 safety card.


It is also very interesting to see what the aircraft interior looks like. The next picture shows Berlusconi's A319CJ (Aeronautica Militare Italiana).

There is this awesome book about safety cards. It's called 'Design For Impact'. It takes you way back to the very beginning of the safety cards, to an era in aviation where men wore high hats and their women fancy dresses. It turns out that the first 'real' safety cards were introduced on board airplanes in the Thirties. They mostly consisted of written words, where today's cards only contain pictures and drawings. Anyway, if any of you is looking for an interesting book to read with a lot of pictures of old safety cards, then this is a 'must have'.

My collection:
I have over 7.000 cards and I am rather proud of my 'little' collection.

What do I hope to accomplish?

bullet

First of all, I hope one day to be able to give a complete overview of all the Belgian safety cards ever published. I know this is going to be a near impossible task. But, there is no rush, I have all the time. You could call it a life's work.

bullet

Secondly, I want to have a safety card from every aircraft I have on photo.

bullet

Thirdly, as the Lockheed TriStar is my favourite aircraft, the safety cards on board these gracious iron birds are dear to me as well.

bullet

Last, but certainly not least: there has to be passion, but it should not become an obsession.

If you are interested, I have some spare cards. Just send me an email and I'm sure we can work something out.
