You are bidding on a SUPERB Trench Art example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Propeller Blade! Made from a section of Ju88 propeller, it was recovered from an aircraft that presumably crashed at Fliegerhorst Zeltweg. Sadly, I do not have any further history.
In 1935, an arifield was planned to be constructed in the middle of Styria, Austria. A year later, construction began, and in late 1937 the first training unit (Schulgeschwader) was stationed there, and teh airbase named “Fliegerhorst Zeltweg”. On March 13, 1938 the airfield was handed over to the German Luftwaffe. They used the station as a training base for twin-engine aircraft, specifically the Ju88, Ju86, and Do17 . In the last months of World War 2, JG 300 “Wilde Sau” was stationed there, just before the Ukraine Army began to occupy the region. The airfield was later handed back to the British Government and the 26th Infantry Division, as well as the Royal Air Force were stationed there until 1955.
Made of solid duraluminum, this is an AMAZING example! Though there are some slight marks and wear, it is VERY solid with no damage or corrosion! Easily recognizable as a Ju88 Propeller Model, it is approx. 6″ in diameter. Fully engraved on the reverse, it indicates:
Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
