Product Details

See history from your desk. The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was a heavy bomber used widely for precision strategic bombing in Europe during World War II. This piece from a genuine B-17 instrument panel includes a magneto switch and turn-and-bank indicator. The magneto supplies ignition power to the spark plugs in an airplane piston engine; the turn-and-bank indicator displays the rate of turn. The instruments have been refinished by hand and set in a housing made from plasma-cut 11-gauge hot-rolled steel, in a shape inspired by Boeing propeller planes of the 1940s. The entire assembly was then hand-polished and powder-coated with a vintage finish. Certificate of Authenticity included. Each piece is unique and may vary slightly from photograph. Measures approximately 11.5"L x 8.5"W x 8"H. Made in U.S.A. *NOTE: This artifact is sold "as is" with no guarantee that parts maintain original function. Not for flight use.*
