You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a Control System relic, as ONLY used on the He111 bomber aircraft! This specific items was removed from a very early He111 B (W. Nr. 1060) that crashed in Germany. Sadly, I do not have any detailed loss information for the moment.
The Heinkel He 111 was a German aircraft designed by Siegfried and Walter Günter in the early 1930s in violation of the Treaty of Versailles Often described as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”,it masqueraded as a transport aircraft, though its actual purpose was to provide the Luftwaffe with a fast medium bomber.
The Heinkel was the most numerous and the primary Luftwaffe bomber during the early stages of World War II. It fared well until the Battle of Britain, when its weak defensive armament, relatively low speed, and poor maneuverability were exposed.Nevertheless, it proved capable of sustaining heavy damage and remaining airborne. As the war progressed, the He 111 was used in a variety of roles on every front in the European Theatre. It was used as a strategic bomber during the Battle of Britain, a torpedo bomber during the Battle of the Atlantic, and a medium bomber and a transport aircraft on the Western, Eastern, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African Fronts.
Made of aluminum and steel, this is in EXCELLENT relic condition. There is some slight corrosion, however it retains 95% of it’s original camouflage paint! This came to me with a large quantity of relics from this aircraft (including the data plate confirming the ID). Most likely from the wing area (controling the ailerons or similar), it would make a VERY NICE addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
