Military Aircraft / Aircraft Wanted for NonProfit Display !
« Last post by marianmadalin32 on January 11, 2018, 02:23:18 PM »
Hello, my name is Marian Madalin, mechanical engineer and aviation
passionate. I am trying to open myself a small aerospace museum or
open space for any kind of aircraft here in my country. The project is
entirely nonprofit and will be based exclusively on donations. It is
more like an educational project and background to inspire and
encourage young people, like students and school children to start a
career in this domain.

For the begining, can you consider helping me with a free charity
donation of any type of aircraft, plane or helicopter, even a glider ,
in any condition: small, big, civil/military, new, old, broken, rusty,
salvage, junk or even an airframe(an empty shell) ?
Even a parachute or even something related to aviation would be good.

Can you ask those who attend at your  aviation event this simple
question ? Thanks.

If you have any other questions, please reply or call me at
+40748230945 or +40751657933.
Thank you.

Warbirds / Magneto switch box & Oil Pressure gauge - Need help identifying aircraft
« Last post by AusA380 on September 10, 2017, 12:30:17 PM »
Hi,
 
I recently went to a militaria swapmeet and picked up an oil pressure gauge and a magneto switch box from an aircraft. I'm not sure which aircraft they are from and i'm hoping people on here could give me some information.
 
From what i've seen on the internet, the magneto switch box appears to be from a British aircraft. The Spitfire looks to have a similar switch box, but the toggle switches are different from what I have. The Lancaster/bomber toggle switches appear similar to the one I have (Thick ends instead of ball ends like the Spitfires).
 
I'm unable to find any information on the oil pressure gauge. It has the text 'Mk VIII C No. 5064' and 'J. Tomey & Sons B'Ham' printed on the face of the gauge and an A & M with a crown stamped on the back. Mk VIII C is a Spitfire variation, but i'm unable to find a photo of a Spitfire cockpit with this gauge.
 
Any information would be appreciated.
 
Thanks
