The most unique aviation products?

The Coffee thread made me think of some unique aviation-related stuff that I have come across. Just thought I'd share these, since they're all pretty cool (no, I don't work for any of them!):

Kenmore Air Harbor is one of the biggest seaplane bases in the world....and they have their own blend of coffee called "Beaver Blend" which is named after the workhorse seaplane. It's great stuff:

For the "over 21" crowd, there is a company in Montana called Lang Creek Brewing that makes aviation-related beer! It's hard to find unless you live in the area, but it's pretty good if you can manage to get your hands on some (I had some "Tri-Motor Ale" on a trip to Kallispel last summer):

And there is a company in California called MotoArt that makes furniture out of classic aircraft parts and military ordnance:

Anybody else know of other unique products (and I don't mean the usual boring stuff like the "Bad Attitude" t-shirt or the altimeter clock that you can order from Sporty's)?

[/ QUOTE ]aviation related beer? how is it aviation related? is it non alchoholic so you can drink it and fly too?

I've seen the motoart - they're usually showcasing at the Barrett Jackson Classic Car Show every year out here... but man - as nice as the pieces are, they are awfully expensive!!

They've got Windsock Pale Ale, Taildragger Honey Wheat, Ultralight, Staggerwing Stout, etc.

I used to work with a consultant who had logged a few hours in the Ford Tri-Motor many years ago. I brought back a 6-pack of "Tri-Motor Amber" from my Kallispel trip and gave him a bottle. I knew exactly what he would do with it. He set it on the shelf in his office right next to his model of the Tri-Motor.

How about these neat miniature, red remove-before-flight keychains? They're pretty cool.

On an old old thread, someone said they had a key chain that said, "Did you close your flightplan today?" And he/she never has forgotten to do so ever since they got it.

I had one of those for years, and I loved it!!! Got called a dork quite a bit, though (I was a mechanic, surrounded by mechanics, and Marines show no mercy to even their own...).
