Avro Anson Control Yoke (pg1 cont)

Here is a control yoke and sprocket from an Avro Anson.

The Avro Anson earned its nickname of "Faithful Annie" by serving the RAF from 1934 to 1968. The Anson Mk.I was a low-wing monoplane with retractable landing gear, a first for the RAF The construction, was conventional: the wing was made of spruce and Bakelite-bonded plywood, and its fuselage of steel tube with fabric and plywood covering. Originally the Anson's were painted with a shiny aluminium dope, but after the outbreak of war camouflage paint was applied. The cockpit with its large windows gave a good view all around. The engines were Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah IX radials, with two-bladed metal propellers. The Anson had a crew of four: pilot, bomb aimer, gunner, wireless operator. The General Reconnaissance version had a manually-operated gun turret with a single .303 gun, and a fixed gun in the nose. The air gunners were volunteers drawn from the ground crew, who received an additional shilling a day to their pay. Two 100lb bombs could be stowed internally, and external racks could carry eight 20lb bombs, flares or smoke generators.

Mk I Hurricane spade grip (pg1 cont)

This is a mint condition early MK I Hurricane spade grip. This grip was the forerunner of the WWII Spade grips using  push button firing as apposed to the paddle type levers used on the earlier 1930s Bi Planes. Practically all grips used in RAF Wartime fighters were based on this design in one form or another through the War. This particular grip has the Dunlop "Patent applied for" legend stamped on it and is extremely rare. This grip was only used on the MK I Hurricane and was made of aluminium alloy as apposed to magnesium used in the later grips reducing their weight. This grip is as good as it gets complete with an original brake lever and parking break catch. The parking brake catch is the only piece with any corrosion being made of steel, this is inevitable on something which dates from the late 1930's. The covering which is often in poor shape is original and in as new condition on this grip.  I see no reason why this grip should not fly again subject to the required checks.

F 24 Spitfire Spade grip (pg1 cont)

This is a Dunlop Mk II control grip. It was the first major development in the design of spade grips for many years and intended as an interim measure until the introduction of the upright or stick grip necessitated by the introduction of ejection seats. This grip was used in a wide variety of aircraft from the last and fastest of the late piston engine fighters to the new breed of jets.

 Aircraft that used this grip were the  Hawker fury, Spiteful, Vampire, Meteor IV, Balliol T 1, Spitfire F 22, F 24.

Spiteful

The Spiteful was a powerful, well-armed and extremely fast piston-engine fighter that appeared just too late to serve during World War II. Test pilots generally found it good to fly, but never in the same league as the sweet handling of the Spitfire. Its square laminar-flow wing was optimised for high-speed flight but also led to the type’s major snag: vicious low-speed handling, with a nasty stall. This was partly improved by various airframe changes, but these degraded the upper end of the flight envelope such that the production aircraft was little faster than the preceding Spitfire F.22/24.

Spitfire F 24

 Nevertheless, in 1947 the Spiteful F.16 with a Griffon 101 reached 494 miles per hour (795 kph), a record that still stands for piston-engine aircraft in Britain. The end of World War II , coupled with the obvious potential of jet aircraft, killed off any hopes of the Spiteful being built in large numbers, with the original RAF Order of 650 aircraft being reduced to just 22, some of which were sent straight to the scrap yard. The same fate ultimately befell many of the naval Seafang derivative, which may have had a fighting chance of serving operationally with the Royal Navy if it weren’t for Hawker’s superlative Sea Fury.

RAF Hercules Control Column (pg5 cont)

This is a control column for a RAF Hercules, it came from Aircraft XV 302 in July 2003 along with a set of rudder pedals listed under.

Although powered by turbo props this aircraft is the last of the RAF's big four engine prop Warbird. These huge elegant birds sport four six bladed propeller's. They have seen action in many theatres of conflict a classic RAF workhorse.

Reputedly noisy and cold (in the hold), told to me by an Irish Guard, they share allot with their second world war Grandparents. This is sure to increase rapidly in value as time goes by.

The Hercules, also known as the Fat Albert (after an American comic book character) entered service with the RAF in 1967.

 It is a 4 engine tactical support aircraft capable of carrying up to 92 ground troops, 64 paratroops, 74 stretcher cases or a variety of vehicles and freight up to 20 tons in weight over distances of up to 4,600 miles at speeds in excess of 370 knots.

More than 2,200 C-130's have been built during this, the longest production run of a particular aircraft in history. It is an extremely versatile aircraft and is used by more than 60 of the world's air forces.
