WWII Bomber Curiosity


Regular price $25.00

Circular molded plastic disc with rotating metal reverse having pin attachment, 2" diameter. Aircraft in center appears to be a B-17. Rectangular window below has text beside: "BLUE-fair, PINK-rain, PURPLE-cloudy". Clearly the window had some sort of barometric indicator telling the weather. At the top is a circular window with four different sized circular holes that can be rotated. Each is calibrated with "10,000 ft (smallest hole)/5000 ft/2000 ft/1000ft (largest hole)". Obviously meant to place an aircraft in the sky within the window to approximate the distance from the observer. Very good; weather window not operable (no surprise). This is a new one on me. May even be a cereal box incentive.
