Alitas Cigarette Pack – 2006

Alitas Cigarette softpack Pack, 2006 BAT Mexico.

Alitas Cigarette softpack Pack, 2006 BAT Mexico.

Sometimes, I just can’t find any information on what I am looking for.

Case in point, this very cool pack of Alitas cigarettes , which looks far older than it is.

This softpack is from Mexico – 2006, in fact, and holds 15 cigarettes, and was produced by BAT Mexico (British American Tobacco Mexico), a company that has been doing business in Mexico for 75 years now.

My confusion is to WHY they would make a cigarette pack with such an old image of a bi-plane on it in 2006.

If anyone has any information on this image, I would appreciate a heads-up.

Along with writing for a monthly industrial magazine, he also writes comic books and hates writing in the 3rd person. He also hates having to write this crap that no one will ever read. Along with the daily Japan - It's A Wonderful Rife blog, when he feels the hate, will also write another blog entitled: You Know What I Hate? He also works on his Pioneers Of Aviation - a cool blog on early fliers. He also wants to do more writing - for money, though. Help him out so he can stop talking in the 3rd person.
