B-25 Magneto Turn N Bank

Item No.

Product Details

The North American Aviation B-25 Mitchell twin-engine bomber was considered by many to be the most versatile aircraft in World War II. The Allies used it for high- and low-level bombing, strafing, photoreconnaissance, and submarine patrol, and it even functioned as a fighter when needed. The heavily armed plane was named for airpower pioneer Brigadier General William "Billy" Mitchell. Our craftspeople carefully removed two instruments -- the magneto switch and turn-and-bank indicator -- from a retired B-25, inspected, cleaned, and polished them, and set them into a custom housing made from plasma-cut 11-gauge hot rolled steel. The housing was hand polished and coated with a vintage-look smoke-tinted clear powder finish. The matching base was machined to resemble airplane skin, complete with rivets. It's a museum-quality piece that befits an aviation legend. A Custom Hangar plaque is affixed to the display, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included. Measures approximately 11.5"L x 8.5"W x 8"H. Weighs approximately 15 lb. Made in U.S.A. *NOTE: This artifact is sold as is with no guarantee that parts maintain original function. Not for flight use.*
