Boeing B-52 'Stratofortress' Flap Screw Casting
Why, just the perfect starter part to build your VERY OWN Boeing B-52 Stratofortress! Imagine the envy on the faces of your hangar buddies when they spy this one in the building!
This is a brand-new part, probably made during Vietnam for the B-52 production line that got somehow stored in a box and warehouse shelved 40 + years ago and only recently has seen the light of day.
Part number is Assembly 39-5664 and forging is 39-4686 and carries NSN 16500-00-650-0846. Brand new steel forging, all machined and ready to go. There's even a little 1960s grease on the inner casting area at the zerk fitting that'll give you a delightful flashback to 1969 when you pop it in your pipe and smoke it. Guaranteed to give you a Purple Haze!
Measures 6 x 2 inches... and ink stamped with several inspection marks. The pillow block opening appears to be 1.25 inches.
Paint condition on the soft green Boeing chromate paint is perfect. Why, there's even a vintage fingerprint there on the grease that I suspect was left from a curious Bill Boeing as well when he toured the casting plant and played a little touchy-touchy along the assembly line. Such history! It'll transport you back to a gentler time when Mick Jagger could jump about stage without worrying over heart issues and the BUFF was the Queen of the Heavies over southeast Asia.
Seriously, not much use for this piece of aero hardware these days, folks, but a great souvenir item for that former BUFF mover in your life. And, you guessed it, I have multiples of these wondrous bits in the event you have just gotta have more than Juan to complete your collection. Do ask at sale close for another and we'll adjust invoicing accordingly.
What you see in the pictures series is well, exactly what you get. Well, almost. The VERY pictured item left a week or so ago and I have it's twin brother here in the box - just without the parts tag with the fancy handwriting. I did take a photo of that information for you and will send you a scan... and you can try YOUR hand at parts tag calligraphy with the Boeing words of wisdom you see here.
