Avation memorabilla
« on: 13 June 2018, 15:55:15 »

Many years ago, I used to do all the electrics for a Bar / Dinner on the outskirts of Hull.
This Bar / Dinner had a aviation theme and when it closed, I managed to fill my car up with everything I could get my hands on  :y

The memorabilia goes from black and white framed photos from the Boeing factory upto full control panels from Boeings aircraft, various instruments ect.
Also various ex NATO aircraft components including hydraulic / air components and also some test equipment.
I also have a 2 blade, fixed pitch wooden propeller which as far as I can tell may very well be original  :y

This little lot has been dry stored at a friends house but sadly has today been removed after a falling out (polite version  :-X)

I need to move this stuff on (and make money out of it) but a more complete description of the components is needed so I can get the best price / not get my pants pulled down.

I can pull the NSN off the military stuff but the civvy stuff is going to be harder to identify  :-\

Has anybody got any idea's about how the do this and where the best place is to get the best price ?

Not really sure on your question but it reminded me of a diner that used to be near here called "Dakotas". The bar inside was made out of a section of C47 fuselage and the tail section was suspended in the adjacent lake as if it had crashed there - until the council jobsworths got their way. :(

There were a couple of Pratt & Whitney Twin Wasps on display in the restaurant too. I wonder what happened to them when it closed? Not sure I could have got one in the back of the Omega anyway. ;D

Basically i've got a car full of aviation bits and I want a better idea exactly what they are / what aircraft they are off so I can get the best price and sell on to make money  :y :D



This place had a replica of a pre WW1 monoplane which was about 30 foot long strung up from the roof  8)
Sadly a quick mental calculation told me it wouldn't fit in the back of my mk2 Astra estate and may have caused problems if I bungie cored it to the roof rack because i'd have had to drive past a police station to get it home  :( :D :D

Not 100% sure but I have boxes of instruments, pressure switches, coms black boxes,  hydraulic / air components.
Looking at the shape of some of them, i'd say some have gyros in them  :-\

Some are in the original boxes as would have been sat on a shelf in tech stores.
Some bits even have the old Red / Green Form 731 labels tied to them  :y

The panels / components are Boeing civvy or military with there version of U/S labels on  :y


One piece of test equipment is a old overspeed test box for (I believe) a victor tanker refuelling unit.  :D

Sorry- What I meant to say is "this post isn't going to help you, but...". :-[

Sounds like a winner. I've always had a hankering for an old Altimeter to use as a barometer, actually. Somehow, they just seem more intuitive than a proper barometer. Zero it to read QFE and, if it reads below ground a bit later the pressure's increased. If it reads above ground, the pressure's dropped. :y

Customer of mine who's long passed now used to fly Vulcans and had the Altimeter from one in his 24v Senator,was working too :y

What is NSN catalogue?

Nato Stock Number

The ident number that was on everything that came out of stores in the military.
I used to have my own unofficial book with everything I ever needed while I was in the mob which saved going through god knows how many mirco fiches  ;D
All in the days before computers  ;)



Ps, it was meant tongue in cheek  ::) ;) ;D
