  • Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Data Plate

    SKU: 20-PRTS-9

     Original data plate for this famous engine in service since the 1920's.  This one carrries the Mft ID No. 22314 which may place it in the 1940's.  One of the helicopters I flew, the Sikorsky H-19 was powered by this engine.  Come to think of it, I blame this engine for much of my hearing loss!

  • Zeppelin L33 Frame Piece - WWI

    SKU: 20-ZEPP-40

     A 7" long x 1" wide piece of aluminum frame from the Zeppelin L33 shot down Sept 24, 1916 at Little Wigborough, UK.  An attached fabric tag relates these events.  The story goes that L33 was attacked by the RFC near the coast of England and, rather than ditch at sea, the captain landed near a small cottage.  The crew surrendered to a single policeman who marched them to the local post office where they were formally arrested.  The local residents proceeded to salvage pieces of the airship as souvenirs, of which this is one.  This particular relic sold in 2000 for $190.  My price is much lower.

     Nicely mangled airship girder, 27" long, 8" high and 2" deep.  Letter of provenance accompanying states that the Lakehurst Historical Society identified this as a frame piece excavated in front of Hangar #4.  The piece was removed by construction workers and it still retains some olive-drab paint and dirt; it was never cleaned after removal.
