  • WWII USAAF Electric Heated Clothing Instructions - circa 1944

    SKU: 21-UN-17

     Seldom seen tri-fold instruction sheet (5.5x9.5" closed, 16.5x9.5" open) printed both sides for the set of Electrically Heated Clothing, Army Air Forces Type F-3A. Opens with an illustration of the full set of components, then a listing of items, steps in preparing for flight, how to operate, warning to navigators and instructions for mounting adapter plugs. Included is a paper label which was inserted in the package containing the "Trousers; Flying, Electric".  This flight clothing set is very rare but if you happen to be lucky enough to have it in your collection, you really need this instruction sheet posted along side!  Very good condition.

  • 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.......

  • Unique USAAC Balloon Wing - circa 1930s

    SKU: 21-UN-10

     Full-size 3" wing, pinback, no hallmarks.  Old-style (circa 1890-1910) balloon overlay on an observer wing.  My bet would be that this was done in Europe on special order.  Excellent.
