Many years ago planes were built all most entirely of wood, canvas and even bamboo. There was no GPS and roads were identified by sighting churches. This amazing Vintage Flight Propellor by Authentic Models is distressed and the centre metal disk is finished with an aged patina. Why not display this on the wall of your living room or executive office - especially paired with our other propellers and placed on the propeller rack. That would really complete your aviation theme.
Wood propellers used to be replaced as often as tires. Old ones were usually taken home, completed with a clock, and hung over the mantel. Mechanics, pilots and flight-crew alike wore propeller tiepins and badges and transformed propellers into memorabilia. It is a continuation of a flight-tradition to keep these beautiful pieces of equipment as a collector's item. Why not join the crew?
Flow of Adrenaline
Admire the shape and finish of a wood creation that once propelled daring aviators over uncharted landscapes. Just imagine; they couldn't see the mechanic from their open cockpit. Someone yelled “Contact!” and the propeller jumped to life and the plane started to shudder. The mechanic pulled away the wheel blocks. The noise was incredible, a nine cylinder Hispano-Suiza, spewing clouds of vapourised castor-oil. Complete cacophony. The propeller became an invisible whirr. Out of the way, this was hands-on flight at its finest, ready for take-off! Adrenaline flowed, the horizon beckoned and the sky opened.
