Directional indicators and Artificial Horizon

Page 7 instruments

RAF Directional indicators and Artificial Horizons are generic instruments, the aircraft shown in our adds did use the parts shown but they may of coarse been used in a different type of aircraft . If you are not sure what part you require then please contact us and I will do my best to advise you on the most suitable purchase. The Directional indicator and  Artificial Horizons was produced in various different designs and were used in the Blind flying panel. The BFP contains instruments which show the flying characteristics, speed and orientation of the aircraft to the Pilot and allow as its name suggests the aircraft to fly blind using the instruments only. These instruments were used in practically every wartime RAF aircraft Bombers and fighters and the basic design remained the same regardless of the aircrafts role or performance.

WW2 German AFN2 Ln.27002 Radio Homing Indicator (Instruments pg 7 directional indicators and Art Horizon 2)

Here we have a AFN2 radio homing indicator its clearly been used but appears to be in good original condition please enlarge the pictures .

The AFN2 possesses 2 pointers, both horizontal and vertical.  When the aircraft is in-line on a direct course to base, the first needle (vertical) sits exactly upright, in-line with the square marking on the bottom. The second needle (horizontal) indicates the distance of the airplane to the transmitter (radio beacon). When flying over the transmitter the horizontal needle points in-line with the middle marking on the left.  When flying directly over the transmitter the fluorescent lamp (Fl.26682), integrated into the AFN2 would light up.  This was used in the Me109, Fw190, Me262, He219, and other late-war  Fighters and Bombers.
