Probably not the best set to start with since they're RAF but these volunteer mini-wings were worn by Bill Nichols an Eagle Sqd. Pilot - POW.

Although not an aviator's pair of wings, I thought you might like to see these. Also since they have been reproduced, I would like the group's opinion if these are original or not.

 

These are the early Air Assault wings, developed when the 11th Air Assault Division was developing concept.

This is my favorite by default because I don't have any others! Belonged to my Dad's Uncle. Unfortunately I was given a bunch of his stuff when I was young and much of it paid the price in the form of dings and dents.

Amico, I think? I'm not a collector of wings, although it would be nice to pick up some different examples... I especially like bombardier and gunners wings. However, even if I did build a nice collection this would still be my favorite... even if it is a bit beat up...
