Wing pick up today
« on: October 11, 2015, 09:18:18 AM »
I picked this wing up in a "lot"  on an auction on facebook , the other items that came with it are AAF related . What i wanted to ask you fine fellows of the forum is this , is it me or does there look to be some sort of "inscription" for the want of a better word on the back on the left handside of the wing as we are viewing it ??  i might just be seeing things but any opinion other than mine is worth a million dollars !!



REST OF THE LOT

It does look that way Carl. Try rubbing a suitably dark compound like shoe polish into it, then wipe it off. It might serve to enhance any markings which might be there? Nice Flight Officer insignia...pin-back?

Ian !!  that might be a tad difficult at the moment ,  as the pieces are still in the US  ;D    Yes the FO insignia is pin backed , might have paid a little over the odds for the LOT , but i did like that wing !!
