Control Wheel / Yoke Vintage Aircraft
Here is a vintage aircraft Control Wheel / Yoke. Our guess is that it is from a pre-WWII or WWII-era aircraft, but we have not come across any documentation to confirm this theory. There are no part numbers on it. Knowledgeable visitors are invited to email us if you recognize it.
Measures ~7 inches tall and ~14 inches tall. Above its center and to the left and right are twin fittings for a yoke-mounted attachment, purpose unknown. It is clearly experienced, the black paint is worn and chipped, but the underlying metal casting is intact. A cool artifact indeed.
