Aircraft Parts

  • Misc. Airship Parts Lot - circa 1937

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-348

     A group of aluminum and steel relic pieces, reportably from an airship circa 1937.  Two of the items bear tags from a Florida antique shop which would provide a start for more provenance research.  The items ae roughly:  1) a u-shaped riveted girder piece, about 6" on a side, 2) a steel turnbuckle with rubber grommets in the ends and a wire at one end (control cable?), 3) a small (4") aluminum girder piece with two smaller pieces riveted at one end, 4) a large (3.5") wing nut with a 1/2" threaded center, and 5) a bundle of about 50 aluminum tubes (6" long) that look like they might be cut from a radiator; some are loose, others fused together.  Of course, the "story" is that these are from the Hindenberg!  All in relic condition as you might expect.  SOLD
