March 28, 2014 - Another Flight, Another Typewriter in the Overhead

Yeah, I am THAT guy!

This time it's a 1962 Olympia SM7!


  1. I was going to ask if it was an Adler or Olympia, but I see you put the info here.

    I'd be that guy (well, girl) too. :3

  2. :) there was an older lady sitting in front of me. When I pulled it down as we were getting ready to de-plane, she looked at me and asked, "that's a typewriter case, isn't it?"
    I said, "yes."'with a smile.
    She continued, "that's an Olympia. I used to haul one of those back and forth to work, for years. They're not ALL in the Smithsonian!" Grinning a Cheshire Cat sort of grin.
    I told her how impressed I was that she nailed the ID. :-)
