Aircraft/Engine Paper

  • McCulloch 4318C Helicopter Power Plant Tech Report - 1955

    SKU: 20-CAT-50

     Interesting 14pp, 8.5x11" report with photos, illus and specs on the conversion of a 4-cyl McCullough 4318A drone engine into a helicopter engine for a one-person helicopter.  The report is housed in vinyl sheets with a heavy black plastic cover and comb binding.  Likely this was also used as a sales document.  Excellent condition and quite rare.

    SKU: 20-CAT-46

     Two-page story by Dick Geist of this famous aircraft, built in 1933 and subsequently used by Aeronca as a demo in their plant, then stored and finally rebuilt.  Very good.

  • Waco Aristocraft Pre-Production Catalog - 1946

    SKU: 20-CAT-34

     Mimeographed 8.5x11" catalog, 15pp plus 7 blueprints in the back, all contained in a period fiberboard cover.  Date on the last page of Nov 15, 1946.  The preface defines the purpose as a heads-up for Waco sales staff.  Even though this aircraft was never successful, this is a rare piece of Waco history.  Some water damage on the cover only; else very good. (The photo shown in the image at the left is only for clarity and is not part of the manual)

  • Original Waco CG-4A Glider Photo

    SKU: 20-CAT-33

     WWII-era 8x10" b&w photo. Pasted to the reverse is an extensive mimeo text with specs on the CG-4A.  Better yet, the reverse is stamped: "PLEASE RETURN/Property of Public Relations Department/Waco Aircraft Co., Troy, Ohio" .  Photo is very good, three-hole punched, likely for the Waco files.  Waco glider ephemera is very difficult to find.
