PSA was a San Diego based airline from 1949 to 1988; USAir purchased PSA in 1986. I was an employee and had over the years collected an extensive variety of PSA memorabilia. In 2018, I donated over 100 items to the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Most of the items on this list were donated. These items were added to the 75 plus boxes of existing material which supports their permanent PSA exhibit.


Ticket stubs from almost every event I've attended since HS, along with numerous unused tickets. List or pictures coming soon.
