"You can turn a plain window into a plane window," Flying Colors Glass owner and artisan Gary Elshoff told AVweb this week at the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In in Lakeland, Fla. The Grafton, Wis.-based company allows Elshoff to combine his love of aviation with his skills to create custom-designed stained glass to replace an existing window or even hang on a wall. The result is one-of-a-kind original works of aviation art that showcases your airplane, or any airplane for that matter. At the show, Elshoff said he recently hired a glass carver to expand Flying Colors Glass' offerings of aviation-themed windows. An approximately 18-inch square, custom-made stained glass window made by Elshoff and crew costs about $400.

For the more budget-conscious aviator, Elshoff has also offers a line of original holiday ornaments featuring different airplanes each year.
