What is Der Flugplatz? Who are we, well here are a few answers to the questions you weren't asking.
Der Flugplatz is German for 'The Airfield', and was the idea of Jessica Bannister-Pearce. Jessica is a freelance aviation journalist with a real love of all things commercial aviation. She got tired of searching eBay for items to add to her collection, and she wondered if others felt the same. So she founded Der Flugplatz to focus solely on Airline Collectables.
In October 2019, she opened for business, with a full launch coming in February 2020. A month later the world began to Lockdown due to COVID-19. To say that 2020 has been challenging would be an understatement. 2021 continued to be challenging with events cancelled and travel limited. for 2022 though, we're hopeful that we can once again get out and about, and that we can begin to bring new products to the website.
