Unknown wings


Recommended Posts

Can anyone ID these two ? Top is crude Vietnamese casting, with typical plastic grips. I have no idea what the lower one is - originally the 'Yen' disc hung from wing.

thanks for your thoughts

Hi Pluto,

Correct on the top being South Vietnamese Air Force (VNAF 1960-1975). These are Flight Engineers wing (fixed wing). The other is interesting think.gif Japanese rising sun, purpose?

 

Cheers,

AW.

The bottom wing remeinds me of those that are available online with custom center devices 8th, 9th AF... same hollow back construction with electrostatically attached pins.
