  • Early Irvin Air Chute Bag - Circa 1925-35

     Tan canvas bag about 15"x15"x20" with a top flap secured by 7- Carr Fast Co. post fasteners and front & rear loop web carrying handles.  Flap carries the stenciled logo of Irving.  Included is a postal cover commemorating the fatal flight of Paul Redfern attempting a solo flight from Brunswick, NJ to Rio de Janeiro in 1927.  The story attached to this bag is that it belonged to Redfern but I have no documentation.  Nevertheless, a very early artifact from the Golden Age of Aviation.  Structurally sound with no tears but with soiling throughout.

  • Topping T-39 Model - circa 1970's

     Large solid plastic model by Topping on stand.  Wingspan and length both 13",  original stand reads: "North American Aviation/Columbus/North american Rockwell".  I flew this aircraft from 1978 to 1984 and have many fond memories.  This model would normally sell for about $100 but this one has some vertical stabilizer chips and a repair (as seen in the bottom photo) so I have priced it much lower.
