WW2 USAAF Turnbuckle B17 Flying Fortress

An original brass and stainless steel turnbuckle with swaged ends.

This was found with several other items by a collector who visited USAAF bomber airfields in the South of England. Specifically B17 bases.

There are minimal markings in the turnbuckle:

A on the central barrel
AA on the two arms.

No other markings but it is a common item in WW2 aircraft and it we have seen others in B17 crash finds.

The central barrel is brass. The two ends are threaded - one left handed and one right handed - so that turning the central barrel tightens both ends equally.

The wired that were to be tensioned were placed in the hollow ends and then swaged onto the barrels.

This one was bent so was likely removed from a damaged aircraft and thrown away.

Will come disassembled for easier postage.

It measures ca. 28 cm long.
