    The second item looks like an exhaust shroud that is used as a cabin heater, but gawd knows what off.

      The pilot found himself sitting substantially lower...on a bent elevator connecting rod with the spade grip closer to his chin than is normal.

        Ebay Fee s

        If I may put my ten pence in.

        As we have found with our web site if you use the Paypal link to pay for something or make a donation we have found they take 10% off everytime.

        BUT

        If instead you do not use this direct facility but go into your paypal account and send someone the money (NOT AS EBAY GOODS) Then they charge you precisely nothing !!!!.

        We make as much use of this loophole as we can but I wonder how long it will be before paypal close it ???

          Problem with that is if a dispute occurs you have had it.

            And the aeroplane concerned received a fair amount of TLC the following winter.

              Hi again, been looking around for the other parts and found some alloy pipe with brackets that looks to be from a plane, it is stamped SAC with the "A" being larger than the S and the C.
              Any ideas??? Pics tomorrow.

              Building up a nice wee collection...wonder what else will turn up?

                ?
                SAC could be for Southern Aircraft Components they were at Hemel Hempstead and certainly made matal fittings for Mosquito's and possibly other types as well.

                  They would of course love to have the seat for their 46, but feel that the 10k price is way over the top.
                  That was based on all the parts being usable as airworthy which i said, if not the price would drop...

                      It would be interesting after all the preamble to know how much the seat went for if possible and what its likely future will be.
