Miles Master Throttle (pg4 cont)

This is a superb complete fully functional throttle box from a Miles Master seen in situ under.

In January 1939 large extensions to the Miles factory were completed and opened by the Secretary of State for Air. These were necessary to cope with a large contract for the Master I high-speed advanced training monoplane: a two-seater powered by a 536kW Rolls-Royce Kestrel 30 engine. Nine hundred were built.

Soon after the outbreak of World War II, the prototype Master II flew for the first time. It was based on the Master I but powered by a 648kW Bristol Mercury XX radial engine. Production amounted to approximately 1,800 aircraft, a number of which were sent to South Africa. Master IIs were also acquired by the air forces of Egypt, Portugal and Turkey. One Master II was used in connection with rocket experiments.

The Master III was a further development of the Master series, powered by a 615kW Pratt & Whitney R-1535-SB4G Wasp Junior radial engine. A total of 602 was built. Maximum level speed was 372km/h.  It went through a number of variants according to engine availability and was even modified as an emergency fighter during the Battle of Britain.

Miles master throttle 2 (pg4 cont)

Here is another throttle box from a miles master although  it does have some corrosion and a few knobs missing and will need some work to bring it back to the condition of the example shown above.

Lancaster suction cock (pg4 cont)

A vacuum pump is fitted each inboard engine on the Lancaster, one operates the six vital instruments on the blind flying panel, the other operates the Mk14 bomb sight.  In the event of failure of the pump supplying the blind flying panel the changeover cock can be operated and the supply is robbed from the bomb sight and diverted to the vital flying instruments.  It is not possible to operate instruments and bomb sight from one vacuum pump. The portion seen on the panel is normally painted red.

Reproduction Lancaster yoke (pg4 cont)

                                                                                         Here we have a Lancaster yoke reproduction. It is cast in sold alloy and is quite heavy. It is however solid so will take any amount of punishment if you were to modify for a simulator or cockpit. If you want to fit it to a column or fit a brake lever it is going to require more work as a wall hangar it is perfect.

Mk TIC Seafire equipped with RATOG (rocket-assisted take-off gear) from the RAE Farnborough carried Out trials aboard

HMS Illustrious.

 

Seafire RATOC Control (pg4 cont)

This is a very rare piece. The control unit for operating the Rocket Assisted Take Off Control on Seafires from Aircraft Carriers. Mint in its original box.

A/M 5CZ/3077

The RATOG trials were the direct result of the fact that, other than Fleet carriers of the Illustrious class, the Navy's carriers did not have catapults compatible with the spigots and spools of the Seafire, rockets thus being the only readily available means of shortening take-offs.The trials aboard Illustrious were pronounced successful and subsequent production Seafires were provided with RATOG attachment points.

Rocket assisted take-off was used as an alternative to catapult launching for heavily loaded aircraft, or in low wind conditions. One or two rockets were fitted in jettison carriers each side of the fuselage, above the wing-root and angled up. The rockets were fired at a pre-calculated distance from the start of the take-off run determined according to aircraft weight, wind speed and take-off run available.
