RAF Airspeed instrument marked upto 34 knots max, of the type used in the Lancaster cockpit.

M8817 - RAF CASED WIND FAN.   £75
Not often I am stumped as to the use of or indeed what is an item. This item consists of a fairly large metal drum like case, with hinged lid, inside is a device made up of two metal, open ended tubes, the largest a little under 2ft in diameter, in which is fixed a much small tube, the centre is a shaft with bearings, that holds a four bladed fan, the blades shaped to revolve in both tubes, the whole thing has four steel suspension cables, two at the front and two at the rear, each ending in a spring clip, only markings are a stenciled "AFT" to the rear of the inner tube, so you know which way round it should be and a "Do not touch" on the inside of the larger tube, there is also a small label with the AM mark and kings crown and having a reference number 44A/3020. This is the only thing that indicates its use by the RAF and though kings crown, I think it is more likely late 40's vintage. The fan has no connections for wires, or plugs, anything that would show its purpose as a possible anemometer, or generator etc, so I am at a loss, interesting though and in good condition.

Interesting combination of a WW1 german "Astra" prop/blade section, possbly from a Fokker D-V11 and fitted with a circa 1940 french Lip type 14 aircraft cockpit clock. As this item came from germany, its possibly its original owner picked up the clock from one of the hundreds of derelict french aircraft after the 1940 french campaign, brought it back to germany and put it in a WW1 german blade, who knows ?

M7613 - PISTON & CONROD FROM P38 LIGHTNING CRASH.   £55

A new made, alloy replica of the left side instrument panel of the famous JU52 luftwaffe three engined transport & paratroop aircraft, or "Auntie Ju" as it was nicknamed. Panel is ready to take instruments for display and would have been the pilots main panel.

A full length, complete alloy propellor blade from a Me109E of Battle of Britiain vintage, this recovered blade has traces of its original finish but more interesting, it has several bullet holes or strikes, so the actual aircraft must have been really peppered.

M7736 - ME109E GUN CAMERA COVER AND WARNING PLATE, 1940.   £75
A gun camera side cover with instructions and a warning panel, from a Me109E shot down in 1940, at Kings Lynn Station, Norfolk. Do not have more details on this aircraft and what squadron at the moment but it is Battle of Britain.

A original wartime RAF Havard trainer, control column, with the original spade grip replaced by an alloy replica. The alloy column has its original greenish finish. The havard was the standard wartime, advanced trainer for RAF pilots before going onto to fly fighters.

M3620 - GLOSTER METEOR CONTROL GRIP.   £275
Almost new condition, cockpit control grip for a Gloster Meteor, the RAF jet figther that came into service during WW11, although this grip is for a much later model, all gun buttons & switches intact, complete with brake lever.

M8350 - FOKKER WULF FW-190 RELIC WING SPAR.   £85
An approx 4ft long section of wing spar, from a FW190 fighter, which still has area's of intact original paint, a good, large relic display item from this classic luftwaffe fighter.

M8639 - F.A.A. SEAHAWK FIGHTER COCKPIT CONTROL GRIP.   £250
A very good condition, pilots cockpit control grip, with a custom made, wood display base, having the outline of the aircraft on it. The grip, complete with its brake lever, has all its flip-up safety covers, buttons & trigger working and has its data plate fitted. The Seahawk was one of the first fully operational, carrier launched jet fighters used by the navy.

M8477 - E.E.CANBERRA PILOTS CONTROL YOKE.   £125
A black finished, alloy control yoke, straight out of stores and unused, for an RAF, English Electric Canberra, the classic twin engined medium bomber, which entered service in 1951 and only retired in 2006 by the RAF. The original design started in 1944 as a successor for the Mosquito, so has a long pedigree. The yoke when fitted would have had a control grip fitted to the right arm but this is a separate item and missing.

M7824 - DUNLOP COMPRESSOR DATA PLATE.   £35
A wartime brass data plate for a unknown Dunlop compressor, possibly aircraft related but needs research.

M4284 - DORNIER AIRCRAFT FACTORY SERVING PLATE.   £65
A white china serving plate, with ridges splitting it into three sections for three types of veg etc, it has a small colour, Dornier Aircraft factory logo to the edge, on the reverse is a makers mark and also the DAF logo. I would suspect it was used in the factory canteen, hence the workers union logo, in excellent condition, apart from minor rubbing to the edge of one of the ridges.

M8825 - DORNIER AIRCRAFT FACTORY ID TAG AND KEY TAG.   £60
A factory ID tag, circular metal with the Dornier aircraft logo on one side and "Dornier Werke - Wismar" on the other with ID number 1908, the number 08 is repeated on an extra brass disc, which I think might be for the workers locker key.

M8739 - DORNIER 1942 CRASH RELIC SKIN WITH BULLET HOLE.   £75
A section of aircraft alloy skin, with very faint paint traces and what appears to be a bullet hole from a possible 20mm weapon. This item was recovered from Wheeldale Moor, a high point on the yorkshire moors and the crash site of a Dornier D0217, code U5+AK, werk No 4348, of 2/KG2. The aircraft flew into the ground at speed, killing all the crew, whilst on route to attack york, its thought it may have been hit by flak but nightfighters are known to have been about and this may explain the bullet hole.

M8740 - DORNIER 1942 CRASH RELIC ALLOY PANEL.   £65
A fairly large alloy panel, with traces of grey camo paint intact, that came from a Dornier Do217 luftwaffe bomber, code U5+AK. This was one of 15 aircraft on route to attack York on 17th/18th Dec 1942, for what ever reason (some say it had been hit by flak crossing the coast) while flying over the yorkshire moors, it failed to clear a high point called Wheeldale Moor, hitting the ground at speed, shattering over a wide area. The pilot Fw. Wilhelm Stoll and his three crew members were all killed.

M8626 - DORNIER 17Z OF KG76, 1940 RELIC ARMOUR   £40
A relic section of armour plate, recovered from the crash site of a luftwaffe Dornier 17Z, of 7/KG76, aircraft was lost on 16th Aug 1940 after being rammed by a Hurricane of 111Sqd, the Dornier coming down at Moatlands in Kent, all were killed.

M5335 - DH VAMPIRE REFLECTOR GUNSIGHT.   £200
An impressive reflector gunsight for the DH. Vampire, the early RAF jet fighter, complete with armoured cable & connector, has various setting controls and full data label, only fault I can see is that the rubber guard to protect the pilots head in the event of a crash landing, has melted a little, otherwise it is in excellent condition.

M8479 - DH METEOR COCKPIT CONTROL GRIP.   £175
A good condition pilots cockpit control grip for a late model DH Meteor, which first became operational in july 1944 and various models continued in service until the mid 60's. This grip is the type that replaced the spade grip, when ejector seats were introduced, it has been mounted for display and is just missing its brake lever, otherwise main firing trigger & weapons buttons with safety covers are all intact and operate, also still has its data plate.

M8518 - COFFMAN ENGINE CARTRIDGE STARTER,   £195
A very nice condition Coffman cartridge engine starter breech unit, type QB7, or "shotgun starter" as sometimes known. This was a device used during the 30's & 40's that held three special blank cartidges that could be fired one at a time to start aircraft engines, mainly radials but the sytem was also used on aircraft like the Spitfire & Typhoon, finished in polished metal with all its data plates intact, it is mounted on a custom made, wooden display base and stands approx 16 inches tall, making a fine display item.

M9244 - BUCKER 131 JUNGMAN TAIL FIN.   £400
An excellent original tail, rudder fin, for a german Bucker 131 biplane trainer, with silver fabric covering and Bucker name in black, complete with its metal fixing joints and control cable points, also the short metal fin section has a warning stencil in german. The Bucker 131 was the main trainer for the luftwaffe, as the Tiger Moth was for the RAF. This one is in original condition but appears to have been used for instruction, as the canvas covering on one side has been slit, so it can be rolled back to show the internal construction, but from the other side it displays untouched, a rare and impressive item.

M8826 - BRITISH WW11 ROCKET POWERED TARGET DRONE.   £285
Unusual I.M.A. rocket powered target drone, IMA being the "International Model Aircraft Ltd" the same company that made all those "Frog" balsa flying model aircraft and went on the develop the Jetex motor for postwar models. This drone had a cordite based rocket motor that just plugged into the underside of the fuselage, was catapult launched with the rocket to maintain its speed. It has a wingspan of just over 3ft, construction just like a model, being wood frame with fabric covering, coloured bright orange, was issued in a card box with the wings & tail fittings separate and quickly fitted for use. They were ordered by the navy, who required something fast moving for naval gunners to train their guns on and were produced by the thousand, this is one of the survivors. Has a union flag on the side of the fuselage and an instruction that it is government property and should be handed in if found, very interesting item in good condition.

M8896 - BLIND FLYING PANEL FOR ME262 COCKPIT.   £65
New made, replica alloy blind flying instrument panel for the Me262 jet fighter (the worlds first fully operational jet) the blind flying panel held all the main instruments needed by the pilot for flight, the main panel held everything else.

M9225 - BLANK LUFTWAFFE DATA PLATE.   £30
A generic luftwaffe aircraft data plate, which is unused and still black where aircraft details would be stamped. Recovered from the site of a luftwaffe workshop on a former Berlin airfield, I have a small number of these plates, that would be used to replace damaged items on aircraft and stamped at the time.

M9226 - BLANK JUNKERS DATA PLATE   £45
A junkers aircraft factory data plate, with factory logo, which has not been stamped with aircraft details and is still blank or unused. Recovered from a former Berlin airfield which had luftwaffe workshops, these plates would be used to replace those damaged when panels etc were replaced, interesting item.

M8584 - B17, 92ND BG CRASH RELICS 1944.   £60
Two relic items, one a tubular support with bracket, the other what looks like a bracing bracket, both from american B17 bomber 42.31494, of the 407th Bomber Squadron, 92nd Bomb Group, that crashed with two engines out on its approach to Matching Green in Essex on 4th Feb 1944, on its return from Frankfurt, with pilot 2nd Lt.Winslow Reid.

M8008 - B17 FLYING FORTRESS RELICS   £75

Items consist of an alloy spar or frame section, possibly fuselage and an alloy & steel componant from one of the Wright Cyclone engines.

A mint, unissued and still in the wrapper, american fighter pilots control grip, in black bakerlite with chequered pattern grips, with front gun trigger in red, top button and the addition of a side button for bomb release, which indicates this grip is possibly for the US navy/USMC aircraft such as the Corsair & Hellcat, which both carried bomb racks. Great display item straight out of stores.

M8418 - AMERICAN HEAVY BOMBER COCKPIT COMPASS.   £55
A large type D-12, 6 inch diameter, heavy bomber aircraft compass, made by the american Bendix Aviation Corp & Pioneer Instrument Co. New York. Compass operates and is in good condition, has data plate attached, the alloy shroud around the casing has been pushed out of shape but could easily be sorted, nice item.

M8419 - AMERICAN HEAVY BOMBER CLI INSTRUMENT.   £65
Interesting cockpit instrument from a WW11 heavy bomber, it is a Course Line Indicator, this gives the aircraft position by computing course & heading details, which you can feed in using the two knobs, one for course, the other heading, which control pointers, it has a face which is cross between a compass and artificial horizon with black background, interesting item made by the Collins Radio Co of Cedar Rapides, Iowa.

M8416 - ALLOY AIRCRAFT RUDDER PEDAL.   £65
A single alloy, pilots cockpit rudder pedal in good condition, from a unknown aircraft, that is known to be british, as there is a Dunlop device attached to a side bar. Has evidence of much use but is in very good display condition and has traces of original paint.

M6574 - 1942 RAF AIRCRAFT AMPMETER.   £40
A 1942 dated RAF cockpit ampmeter instrument, still in its original issue box.

M8813 - PERSPEX RAF DF AERIAL CASING.   £145
A teardrop shaped, perspex housing pod for the DF aerial loop, this one being quite unusual in being clear, rather than the brown bakelite material examples seen on wartime RAF bombers, has a horizontal seam with inset screw locks, so will split into two halves, the base half moulded with shaped mount, all in the clear perspex, each half also carries a broad arrow mark and reference numbers, the internal aerial assembly is missing, so we are left with a streamlined goldfish bowl !! At between 2 & 3ft in length, its makes a good display item but the vintage and aircraft type used on is a mystery at present.

M8899 - HALIFAX UNDERCARRAIGE WARNING KLAXON.   £85
A metal warning klaxon with integral fixing bracket in all black finish, taken from a crashed Halifax bomber at the time and in pretty good condition. This was the electric warning klaxon for the undercarraige operation and an item not often seen. Sadly the history & date for when the Halifax crashed is not known but is thought to be from 1943 or 1944. Most likely if powered up it would still work.
