Description

You are bidding on a 100% original WW2 German Captured North American NA-64
“Yale”Aircraft MAIN Data Plate!  Recovered from a wrecksite on teh Eastern Front, but I do not have any history at this time.

 

The North American NA-64 (NA-64 P-2 or NAA-64 P-2 in French service, Yale in Canadian service) is a low-wing single piston engine monoplane advanced trainer aircraft that was built for the French Air Force and French Navy, served with the Royal Canadian Air Force, and with the Luftwaffe as a captured aircraft during World War II.

The NA-64 P-2 was built for the French Armée de l’Air and Aéronavale in 1939–1940, which ordered 200 and 30 respectively. Of these, 111 had been delivered before France surrendered to the Germans after the Battle of France.  In France, the NA-64, like the NA-57 before it, was known as the North,  and was designated as NAA-64 P-2 (abbreviated from North American Aviation modèle 64 perfectionnement, 2 places (North American Aviation model 64 advanced trainer, 2 seats) but were sometimes attached to reconnaissance units. A small number escaped the Germans to be used by the Vichy French Air Force. Two examples in North Africa survived into the postwar years, having been operated alongside NA-57s, the last only being retired in 1949.

  

Made of aluminum, this item is in VERY NICE relic condition!  Though it is corroded and a bit dirty, it retains 95% of its original shape, and is VERY solid!  Markings are legible, and clearly indicate the serial number, 64-2036, making it the FOURTH aircraft ordered by France (French Armee de i’Air ordered for 200 aircraft starting with the Serial Number 64-2033).  This specific aircraft was subsequently captured by Germany in 1940, and used for training purposes throughout the war.  I do not have any further history, but more research can be made.  I have shown its location in the last photo.  Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
