You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Luftwaffe Fabric National Emblem (Swastika), as used only on WW2 German Reconnaissance and Glider aircraft!
This type of fabric covered the aluminum ribs and stringers on the fuselage, flaps, ailerons, rudder, and elevators of various WW2 German aircraftThis was fairly universal on most aircraft control surfaces during WW2.This fabric covering was used to reduce the weight of the surface behind the hinge line so that the mass-balance weight could also be reduced.
Made of lightweight linen, this cloth section is a SUPERB piece of history!Dating around 1944, it retains 95% of it’s original paint and markings!Brought back by a US veteran, there are some slight wear and folds, but otherwise PERFECT!Due to the light coloring, I believe it is from an aircraft used in Africa or Italy…probably an Fi156, DFS230, or other fabric covered aircraft/glider.Measuring approx. 12″ x 12″, it would make for a SUPERB display!A VERY RARE addition to any collection or display!
