I was at the South County antique mall, in suburban St. Louis, today and found this amusing oddity. It is "homemade" and is the Brake Key award from Ozark Airlines. This looks like the kind of gag item that somebody was probably given as a joke at a retirement party. The award mentions that the brake key is a forgotten part of the aircraft. So where does this part go? What kind of plane did it come from? Being Ozark from 1981 I would bet it is from a DC-9.

The Brake Key is attached to the inner wheel hub. There's several of them and they mate with slots in the multi-disk brake assemblies. Here's a link to a photo of a inner wheel hub to give you an idea.

As for type, my guess would be from a DC-9 as that was Ozark Airlines predominant type in that time frame.

Cheers,

$7.50. I didn't buy it. I was looking for stuff for my main collection, Falstaff Beer.
