Captain Charles Nangle is, in fact, a pilot for Northwest Airlines!
Charles became hooked on flying after a family friend took him out in a plane when he was just 9 years old. One adventure led to another, and before too long he was flying F-14 Tomcats for the Navy. He then began a career with Northwest Airlines as a flight engineer, co-pilot, and eventually captain, and has flown, at some point, 727s, 747s, 757s and DC-10s.
Around the time Pan Am and Eastern Airlines were going bankrupt (Ed. note - 1991), Charles saw the airlines' models in the airport store. He figured that they’d make great memorabilia…and that was how he got bitten by the collecting bug!
Bug
Charles prefers to collect domestic airlines, and with over 400 models, mostly 1:250 scale, he has an enviable collection that range from plastic snap-fit to die-cast models. In his collection are some rare model gems, such as a TWA 737, a Continental A330, a United DC-9, and a Northwest L-1011. These fantasy planes never flew, much less existed!
Charles also has one of only two Northwest A340 models that were ever produced. He just happened to be in the employee store when the rest of the airline’s order was canceled.
According to Charles, the curator at the Honolulu Aviation Museum considered him one of their best customers…and then he discovered Flight Miniatures!
His favorite liveries are America West’s specialty states paint schemes, but is hoping to see a new United Airlines; Jet Blue with the different tail designs; or Frontier Airline’s "A Whole Different Animal" series.
Remember that space challenge all collectors face? Charles found a great way to display his collection using a round, glass tiered corner unit he calls his "airport. As his collection has grown he’s even added extra tiers to display the models. He plans to add another "airport" to display the rest of the collection that are currently dotted around his office.
C. Nangle "Airport" Captain Charles Nangle uses his "airport" for displaying his model collection. Not surprisingly, a partiality to Northwest Airlines is visible in every tier.
Captain Charles Nangle doesn’t just collect planes; he photographs them too, and has an impressive library of digital images. Of course, most collectors can’t resist just one theme and Charles is true to his kind - he has a collection of over 450 logo golf balls!
Charles complimented Flight Miniatures on our variety and "spare parts" supplies.
