Artificial Horizon Mk 1D ADI 6A/3290 WL478 Gloster Meteor RAF Vintage Aircraft

Regular price £0.01

Artificial Horizon Mk 1D ADI 6A/3290 Smiths Gloster Meteor RAF Vintage Aircraft.

Vacuum operated. As used on the iconic Gloster Meteor. The first operational British jet fighter aircraft. This particular unit has "WL478" written on the site. Although there is no paperwork to back this up but this heavily implies this is from Gloster Meteor T7 registration WL478 and removed circa 1954. Unfortunately WL478 crashed in 1959 killing the pilot. As such this particular item is being auctioned with all proceedings going to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Used. This has also been in storage for many years so shows some surface corrosions and scuffs. Some paint chipping. Glass in good order. Slightly dusty/dirty. Sold untested for display only and “as is”.

Great item for display or as part of a steampunk / aviation themed project.

Always willing to combine postage. International enquires welcomed, ask for postage quotes.
