Fokker DRI Triplane original turnbuckle (pg1 air)

This extremely rare piece came from our latest buying trip in Holland. Made famous by the Red Barron, Manfred von Richthofen the Fokker DR I Triplane  was painted Red and while

 it remains the most famous aircraft of World War One, only 320 of the Fokker Dr.1 Triplane were built compared to thousands of Spads, Nieuports, Albatroses, and Sopwith Camels.

 Inspired by the devastating performance of the Sopwith Triplane, Anthony Fokker designed and built the Dr.I Dreidecker, and delivered the first triplanes to Manfred von Richthofen's Jagdgeschwader I in late August 1917.

After a brief familiarization flight, the "Red Baron" took aircraft number 102/17 up on September the 1st and promptly shot down a British R.E.8 of No. 6 Sqn, whose crew probably thought the three-winged craft was a friendly Sopwith.

Fokker's new triplane was no mere knockoff of the Sopwith. It featured cantilever wings, supported by single inter plane struts. Only the upper wing had ailerons.  Its twin, synchronized 8mm Spandau machine guns were standard firepower for the era.

The Red Barron was eventually shot down flying this famous aircraft and after many years of controversy it appears this was achieved by ground fire.

Below a picture of the DR I cockpit showing a Turnbuckle these were used all over the aircraft to strengthen the airframe.

Click on the pictures to enlarge.

The turnbuckle came from a WW1 Fokker triplane factory in Zutphen. It was brought here after WW1 and served as a storage facility for a long time. The factory was demolished in 2014 and a couple of these buckles were found, a German aircraft rebuilder, who is making WW1 Fokker planes, recognised it as DR1.

Probably one of a handful of surviving original pieces from a DR I. A certificate of authenticity will be supplied.

Original Spitfire nose cowling from Spitfire SM 234  MK XVI * (pg1 air)

Here is an original cowling removed from MK XVI Spitfire SM 234. approximately 720mm x 730mm

SM 234 reached 601 Squadron on the 1st November 1944 and it seems to have spent much of its short career attacking V2 mobile launch vehicles . Parts like cowlings often required small modifications to get them to fit and so when they were removed the ground crew were in the habit of marking them to ensure they went back on the correct. airframe. This piece was recovered from RAF Kenley in the 1960s.

From the positions of the fasteners shown below is the position of the cowling available just above the exhaust stubs.


Above the MK XVI Spitfire note the clipped wings as a primarily ground attack aircraft the clipped wings made it less twitchy at low altitude.

The Mk XVI was the same as the Mk IX in nearly all respects except for the engine, a Merlin 266. The Merlin 266 was the Merlin 66 and was built under licence in the USA by the Packard Motor company. The "2" was added as a prefix in order to avoid confusion with the engines, as they required different tooling. All Mk XVI aircraft produced were of the Low-Altitude Fighter (LF) variety. This was not determined by the length of the wings (clipped wings were fitted to most LF Spitfires), but by the engine, which had been optimised for low-altitude operation. All production Mk XVIs had clipped wings for low altitude work and were fitted with the rear fuselage fuel tanks with a combined capacity of 75 gal. Many XVIs featured cut-down rear fuselages with bubble canopies. On these aircraft the rear fuselage tank capacity was limited to 66 gal.

Because of a slightly taller intercooler and rearranged accessories on the Packard Merlins a new, bulged upper cowling was introduced and also appeared on late production IXs.

Armament for most Mk XVIs consisted of 2 × 20 mm Hispano II cannon - each with 120 rpg - and 2 × .50 calibre Browning machine guns - each with 250 rpg. 1 × 500 lb (227 kg) bomb could be carried underneath the centre rack, and 1 × 250 lb (114 kg) bomb could be slung under each wing. Some production aircraft had rear fuselage fuel tanks in addition to the main tank which allowed it to fly approximately as far as the Spitfire Mk VIII. Problems with the licence-built engines limited introduction to front-line squadrons for several months. A total of 1,054 Mk XVIs were built by Castle Bromwich

Original MK I Spitfire areal attachments * (pg1 air)

The early Spitfires used the TR9 radio set these were replaced with VHF around the time the Battle of Britain ended

 The TR9 radio required a wire running from the areal  to  the tail.

The two parts shown are the attachments used to connect the wire to the mast and the tail..

They are original and Spitfire only parts you can see the part numbers by expanding the pictures on the left. I believe uses parts to be quite possibly unique.

BF110 wheel door   (pg 1 Relics)

Here we have a wheel door from a BF 110 it still has its ID plate attached see left, I stand to be corrected but I believe with German parts it is often possible to identify the specific aircraft from the plate please contact me if you have any further information on this.

The Messerschmitt Bf 110, often called the Me 110, was a twin-engine heavy fighter (Zerstörer – German for "Destroyer") in the service of the Luftwaffe during WWII. Goring was a proponent of the Bf 110, and nicknamed it his Eisenseiten ("Ironsides").Development work on an improved type to replace the Bf 110, the ME 210 began before the war started, but its teething troubles resulted in the Bf 110 soldiering on until the end of the war in various roles, alongside its replacements, the Me 210 and the ME 410.

HS 126 Luftwaffe recon aircraft tail plane (pg1 air)

This is superb and extremely rare piece a complete tail plane from a HS 126 this piece is in remarkable condition and was recovered from Russia. It has different coloured camouflage paint still surviving suggesting that it served in several campaigns before its demise in Russia.

The Henschel Hs 126 was the Luftwaffe's main short range reconnaissance aircraft in the early years of the WWII, taking part in the invasion of Poland, the campaign in the west in 1940 and the first year of the invasion of the Soviet Union.

The Hs 126 was an all-metal stressed-skin parasol wing monoplane, with a fixed undercarriage. The wing was supported by four main struts, two to each side, with extra bracing between the fuselage and the centre of the wing. The main wheels were mounted on single struts, with internal bracing (cantilevered), attached at ninety degrees to the fuselage. The level angular wing was slightly swept back, with straight edges, and a V-shaped notch at the centre of the trailing edge, above the pilot's cockpit. The cockpit was semi-enclosed, with the pilot under glass but the observer in an open position.

The HS 122 appeared in 1935. It was similar in appearance to the Hs 126, but its performance was disappointing. Henschel were asked to redesign the aircraft to use the new BMW Bramo Fafnir 323 radial engine. A team led by Henschel's chief designer, Dipl Ing Freidrich Nicolaus, took the opportunity to redesign most elements of the aircraft, to produce the Hs 126.

The new aircraft was two feet longer than the Hs 122. The basic parasol wing layout was retained, but a new more angular wing was developed. A cantilever undercarriage was used, allowing each wheel to be supported by a single streamline strut in place of the two struts of the Hs 122. The front half of the cockpit, containing the pilot, was enclosed, while the observer/ gunner's section remained open. It was to be powered by the Bramo 323 Fafnir radial engine.

Junkers JU 88 Aileron(pg1 air)

Here we have an aileron from a JU 88 substantially complete but with some damage this piece was recovered in the Arnhem area of Holland still with its original paint.

In versatility and performance, the Junkers Ju 88 could be compared to the British Mosquito or in some aspects, the B25.

In any event, approximately 15,000 aircraft were produced in various forms from 1939 to 1945. An astonishing 104 prototypes and dozens of variant were built, with more than 9,000 produced as bombers. It had flexibility and was the most modifiable aircraft during the war.

 It was said to be easy to fly with good handling, highly manoeuvrable and responsive. It was without a doubt, the finest German bomber to see extensive service throughout the war.

Hurricane centre section (pg1 air)

Available as a result of the break up of our Hurricane project is a complete centre section including frame  cowlings and undercarriage attachments new made from steel for a static Hurricane project. It is extremely strong and was made to cope with a running Merlin. This piece is the heart of the Hurricane, the original, seen under is an extremely complicated piece made from multi sided tubing that has to be made specially manufactured at huge cost. This is a unique piece for any Static Hurricane project and something which took well over 100 hours to construct using original drawings. The complicated original construction was replaced with tubular and box section steel and is very close in appearance to the original. The dimensions are as original. The cowlings shown are included. This will have to be collected or we can deliver for a cost of £1 per mile in the UK. To ship oversees will be expensive and I would suggest you get a shipping quote before purchase. I would estimate its weight at around 250 to 350 Kgs.

Original MK VII Spitfire Wing tip (pg1 air)

This is an original outer main plane wing tip from a rare MK VII Spitfire. The Mk VII was designed as a high altitude Fighter and used the “c” type universal wings, capable of carrying either eight machine guns, four cannon or two cannon and four machine guns depending on the situation, but with the extended wing tips used on the Mk VI.

The Mk VII was a pressurised fighter. It had a more advanced pressurisation system than the Mk VI, using a sliding cockpit canopy, which was more popular than the locked cockpit on the Mk VI. The best high altitude version of the Mk VII was powered by the Merlin 71, and could reach 416mph at 44,000 ft.

The Mk VII remained in production from August 1942 until early in 1944, although only 140 aircraft were produced in that time.

 The Mk VII was a little more successful than the earlier Mk VI   but the “interim” Mk IX turned out to be capable of operating high altitude itself, and the Mk VII soon lost its special status as a high altitude fighter, although it remained in use throughout the war.

Vickers Wellington tail fairing (pg1 air)

This a substantial piece of the famous Vickers Wellington design by the iconic British engineer Barnes Wallis responsible for the Dambusting bouncing Bomb.

This piece came from the Wellington that crashed at Great Whernside.

Wellington DV718 on Riggs Moor, Great Whernside.

On the night of 2nd/3rd September 1942 the crew of this Wellington was tasked with a night cross-country training exercise along with other aircraft from the same training unit. They took off and flew north but bad weather was effecting the Yorkshire Dales area on this night and this aircraft was to fly into it. The crew undoubtedly were having trouble with visibility flying through heavy rain and in the low cloud they became lost. The aircraft then descended over high ground, presumably so the crew could try and ascertain their position. The aircraft struck the ground between Nidderdale and Wharfedale on an area of high ground known as Blake Hill, on Riggs Moor, to the west of Kettlewell. The large fire after the impact destroyed much of the fuselage section but one airman managed to escape and get clear. He was found the next day and taken to Harrogate General Hospital and after treatment at a hospital in Preston he made a recovery. His four crew mates were not so lucky, they were all killed.

This accident is one of a few in the Yorkshire Dales which has been covered in a number of books in the last few years, I do not plan on copying these works.

Pilot - Sgt George F Ridgway RNZAF (414680), aged 20, of Hamilton, Auckland, New Zealand. Buried Windhill Methodist Cemetery, Shipley, Yorkshire.

Navigator - P/O Donald H Lyne RAFVR (125540), of Whitby, Cheshire. Seriously injured,

Bomb Aimer - Sgt Willie Allinson RAFVR (1145494), aged 34, of Hoyland. Buried Hoyland Nether Cemetery, Yorkshire.

Wireless Operator - Sgt Howard W Spencer RAFVR (1200412), aged 31, of Olivers Battery, Winchester. Buried Chilcomb, Hampshire.

Rear Gunner - Sgt Paul McLarnon RAFVR (999862), aged 22, of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Buried Belfast Milltown Roman Catholic Cemetery, Northern Ireland

RAF Henlow ATC are thought to have removed this section from the crash site prior to 1980.

P-47 Thunderbolt Elevator

This is the Elevator for P-47 Thunderbolt  42-7935 WZ-I. We purchased this from aviation archaeologists from out latest trip to Arnhem

 It still has the hinge and the point at where it would be connected to the controls system. It also has a Plate Identifying it as a P-47D

Elevators are flight control surfaces, usually at the rear of an aircraft, which control the aircraft's longitudinal attitude by changing the pitch balance, and so also the angle of attack and the lift of the wing. The elevators are usually hinged to a fixed or adjustable rear surface, making as a whole a tail plane or horizontal stabilizer

P-47 42-7935 at Duxford May 1943

P-47 42-7935 was flown by Lt James F Byers of 430 Fighter Squadron.

It Crashed on the 30th July 1943 after a Collision with Lt. Col Melvin F McNickle in P-47 42-7961 WZ-M during a bomber escort mission

The Collision happened when Lt. Col McNickle passed out due to a failures in his oxygen equipment. He Collided with Lt. Byers at 28000 ft over Winterswijk in Holland

Lt. Buyers bailed out the Aircraft but his parachute refused to open. He is now buried at Neuville en Condroz at the American Ardennes Cemetery

P-47 Thunderbolt Aileron (pg 3 relic nos 29)

This is the Aileron for a P-47 Thunderbolt that was recovered by Aviation archaeologists and Purchased on our latest trip to Arnhem.

 It is a Large Piece in Crashed Condition and still has Part of the Trim Tabs Attached


P-47 Thunderbolt

An aileron is a hinged flight control surface usually attached to the trailing edge of each wing of a fixed-wing aircraft. Ailerons are used in pairs to control the aircraft in roll, which results in a the plane banking

Trim tabs are small movable sections resembling scaled down ailerons located at or near the trailing edge of the aileron. On most propeller powered aircraft, the rotation of the propeller induces a counteracting roll movement due to Newton's third law of motion, in that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. To relieve the pilot of having to provide continuous pressure on the stick in one direction (which causes fatigue) trim tabs are provided to adjust or trim out the pressure needed against any unwanted movement. The tab itself is deflected in relation to the aileron, causing the aileron to move in the opposite direction

Original Supermarine Spitfire Wing Tip (pg1 air)

Here we have a original wing tip that came from a Supermarine spitfire. It has some writing on it which looks to be L517 but I am unsure as to what this is.

It is holes from where it was hit by 20mm Cannon Fire

This is 720mm x 900mm at its widest point

The Merlin-powered Spitfires used four different wing types, A through to D which had the same dimensions and plan but different internal arrangements of armament and fuel tanks. After introducing the Griffon, Supermarine recognized the need for a completely revised laminar-flow wing to facilitate even higher speeds made possible by this powerful engine. Starting with production Spitfire Mk 21, this wing became standard for post-war variants of this famous fighter.

The majority of the day fighter Spitfires from the Mk I through Mk XVIII used four basic wing types, A, B, C and E.
