  • WWII Aviation Cadet Manual Lot - 1941-43

     Set of five manuals, reportedly the property of a WWII P-51 pilot and likely acquired in flight school.  In the photo from right-to-left: 1) TM 1-400, Theory of Flight, 1941; 2) TM 1-405, Aircraft Engines, 1941; 3) Civil Aeronautics Bulletin No. 24, Practical Air Navigation, 1945; 4) & 5) Civil Aeronautics Bulletin No. 25, Meteorology for Pilots, 1943/1940.  Varying conditions; average fair; these have kicked around for about 75 years.  The lot price reflects condition.

  • General Balbo Postcard - circa 1933

    SKU: 22-P-67

     B&W printed photo of a large crew on the wing and pontoon of one of Italian General Balbo's seaplane.  Excellent, unused.  This is likely circa 1933 when Balbo's fleet of seaplanes travelled to the 1933 Chicago Century of Progress.  Of continuing amazement to me is the award to Balbo, a famous fascist, of the Harmon Trophy and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
