    The thing that intrigues me the most is that there is RCAF stuff in there and USAF stuff. Anyone got any idea? Canadian stationed in America? American stationed in Canada? The maps even have routes on them.

    P.S the Berlin book wasnt from the lot but i got it for free with the case. The total amount of money spent here was 45 euros. I thought it was a decent amount.

    Here are some more pictures of those great maps . Also put a gasmask on the biggest map for showing how damn big this thing is. I can still not believe that i still got it folded up without any new folds. That was a pain in the ass
