B-17 Flying Fortress Navigator Compass II

Item No.

Product Details

The Boeing B-17 bomber was so sturdy and well-armed that it earned the name "Flying Fortress." The monoplane first saw combat in 1941 and won a reputation for survivability in World War II, bringing its crews safely back to base even after sustaining significant battle damage. The navigator, seated in the nose of the B-17, was responsible for tracking the bomber's position relative to Earth and plotting its course to the target and back home. This artifact is a genuine navigator's compass from a B-17. It has been cleaned and set in a custom housing made from plasma-cut 11-gauge hot-rolled steel. The entire assembly was then hand-polished and powder-coated with a vintage finish. Each piece is unique and may vary slightly from photograph. Measures approximately 5.75"H x 9.125" in diameter. Weighs 32 lb. Made in USA. *NOTE: This artifact is sold as is with no guarantee that parts maintain original function. Not for flight use.*
