Attention DC-8 people: For those of you who have a DC-8 control wheel, wishing you had the original cap, we can now get you close. We all know real ones are almost impossible to find. Even if you had one, the special bezel/ring that holds it in place is equally rare. What we have done is duplicate the logo which we have placed on a lens. The lens is then mounted to a genuine DC-8 metal cap giving you a very close approximation of the real thing.Look at the comparison photos. The DC-8 wheel shown is an early version. The cap will work on all DC-8 wheels, early and late. Lens only $95Lens and cap $125

B-47 aircraft commander's control wheel.
Outstanding condition, all original switches, repro cap.
Among the rarest of the rare.
I sincerely doubt there are more than 10 that exist in collections anywhere on earth, probably far fewer unless on museum aircraft.TRADE ONLY...please don't ask us to sell it to you. Will accept late P-38 wheel only in trade.
The cap is interesting. A genuine B-47 cap is virtually impossible to find.
This one has been converted from a B-52 cap by adding the B-47 graphics.
However; on the inside, it has the original B-52 engraving for the logo.
Genuine B-52 caps are also extremely rare.

We tried to save them, or some, but could not, sad to say. TRADE ONLY...please don't ask us to sell it to you. Will accept late model P-38, or B-29/B-17/B-377.

P-61 control wheel...ULTRA RARE. A true aviation artifact from an historic aircraft, involved in an "incident". The P-61 was developed by Northrup in 1942-1943 at Hawthorne Airport in Los Angeles. During a test flight William Walker aborted a takeoff at Santa Monica. He took out a fence, and ended up in a ditch, severely damaging the plane. He suffered serious injuries including broken bones in both hands, which is typical in such accidents because a pilot will tend to keep flying the plane until it comes to a stop. The wheel has been repaired, and while in excellent condition, shows signs of its fate. Rather than diminish its value, the "personality" still visible, actually increases the value as an artifact. Reproduction cap, correct switches.$995
