B-52 Stratofortress Rudder Pedal Plaque III

Item No. "667066010457"

Product Details

The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress was America's first long-range, swept-wing heavy bomber. The massive plane, which entered service in 1955, had eight jet engines and weighed nearly 200 tons. The B-52 saw duty in the Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, and Afghanistan and set numerous speed and distance records. Boeing continues to support and upgrade the B-52 fleet, which is expected to remain in service beyond 2040. This artifact is a genuine B-52 Stratofortress rudder pedal on a custom mounting. Rudder pedals are standard airplane components that control the rudder, a moving surface on the vertical stabilizer. The rudder helps control the yaw, or left-right nose direction, of the plane. The rudder pedal has been cleaned and polished and attached to a 1/2"-thick sheet of hot-rolled steel with a plywood backing covered in black felt. A photograph of the B-52 set in a 6" by 8" clear acrylic sandwich frame with aluminum standoffs is mounted next to the pedal to complete this museum-quality display. The entire assembly has a stainless-steel French cleat on the back for hanging and an attached Custom Hangar plaque. Certificate of Authenticity included. Measures approximately 18"H x 22"W. Weighs approximately 18 lb. Made in U.S.A.
