When airline industry executive Anthony Toth became interested in the airlines and airliners at a young age he set out on a path toward a level of detail in a hobby most of us can only dream about. He began collecting airliner seats, which is in and of itself not that unusual, but he wasn’t happy with just having some conversation piece furniture in his living room. Mr. Toth kept on collecting and gathering pieces of airliner interiors. He built his first replica 1970s Pan American Airlines Boeing 474 airliner interior in his garage. That might have been enough for you and me, but it wasn’t for Anthony. Not even close.
Toth, who sources his airliner interiors from boneyards all over the world, ran out of room in his garage. Did he stop there? Of course not. He acquired a warehouse space large enough to accommodate his 747 forward fuselage interior replica that’s 60 feet long and 22 feet high. The replicas are detailed down to interior partition textures and inflight safety cards. He’s even got a gate area decked out with 1970s-era airline computer equipment and an authentic luggage tag rack. Toth says his replica is the coolest thing he’s ever made. I tend to agree.
