The Retro 51 Vega Tornado rollerball pen is part of the Smithsonian Collection and features a bright Red lacquer finish with “rivets” acid-etched into the metal barrel and then top printed with the Vega’s original Golden pinstripes. The pen has antiqued Brass accents. The barrel, which has a snug, yet springy pen clip, slowly tapers towards the pen tip from a knurled top cap, which has the Smithsonian logo on the top disc. “Smithsonian by Retro 51” is engraved around the top metal band in a tornado-esque font. Twist the knurled metal top cap to reveal the rollerball pen tip. The Retro 51 Tornado comes with a Retro 51 Black rollerball ink cartridge, but is compatible with Easy Flow 9000 rollerball ink cartridges and any Parker-style ballpoint refill if you want to turn your Tornado into a ballpoint pen. Every Retro 51 Smithsonian Collection Vega Tornado rollerball is numbered on the top ring and comes packaged in a commemorative Smithsonian Vega graphic tube that can double as a pen stand. Pick up this rollerball pen for a flight enthusiast in your life!

NOTE: These pens are individually numbered, but not limited in quantity.

About the Retro 51 Smithsonian Vega

Amelia Earhart set two of her many aviation records in a bright red Lockheed 5B Vega. In 1932 she flew it solo across the Atlantic Ocean, then flew it nonstop across the United States - both firsts for a woman. These feats made Earhart an instant worldwide sensation and proved she was a courageous and able pilot. The Smithsonian acquired the Vega in 1966 and it is still on display at the National Air and Space Museum.
