     Unusual (and unused) vintage pilot's flight computer for use in a single seat aircraft.  Top aluminum cover has the classic rotating flight computer for time, distance, airspeed, etc.  Stamped at the top of the outside cover with "Ident No. G6B/145", " King's Crown and R.A.A.F." and "Serial Number WG/1652*". At the bottom is "Computer Navigational Mk.III.D."  Flip open the cover and you find the classic rotating drift track for displaying course.  At the side, lower right, is a knob that scrolls an inside moving airspeed graph.  Inside the open cover is a small notebook for recording flight data. The unit is very heavy (about 2.5 lb) and is unused including the notebook.  The entire unit is in excellent unused condition (one screw holding back leg contour bracket is missing but easily replaced)  SOLD

  • WWII Swiss Aviation Sleeve Rates

    SKU: 21-UN-15

     Two lower sleeve patches, about 5" long by 1.5" wide.  Black felt with gold/brass tone embroidery.  Not a matching pair because of stitching color and width.  These were worn on the classy Swiss aviation tunic, lower sleeve (Google has a few good photos).  Quite rare, I think.  Very good.  The price for the pair.......
