Aircraft Bubble Sextant Type MA-2 Commemorative Display
This is an Aircraft Bubble Sextant Type MA-2 elegantly mounted on a hefty wooden base with brass plaques dedicated to its recipient, pilot Colonel Melvin P. Clark, by appreciative navigators of the 323rd Flying Training Wing at Mather Air Force Base near Sacramento CA in 1978, where he was base commander.
The sextant, made in 1957, swivels on the wooden base to permit viewing of all angles. The knobs on the sextant turn, but its operating condition is unknown. Its in very good cosmetic conditions given it age.
