Aviation As Part Of My House?!

Sat May 13, 2006 2:20 am

Earlier this week, I had to buy some appliances for the house. In order to make way for the new arrivals, I had to rip out this old cabinet in the basement.

As I was destroying the cabinet, I realize that it was actually NOT a cabinet in the truest sense of the word, but it was actually a cabinet fashioned out of 2 old wooden crates. This made my job tougher, much tougher.

As I took the planks of wood apart, I realize one of them said "AIRSPEED INDICATORS" on it, along with a bunch of other numbers and it was dated 01.19.51

How cool is that? Even my house was made with aviation parts!

I preserved the wooden planks in order to show. My guess is these may have one housed parts for Grumman planes, only b/c the house was built in 1950 and Republic is nearby. Another firend of mine suggested Republic

Does anyone here have access to figure out what aircraft these may have been delivered to?

wicked!!! our home was made of aviation related stuff! LOL
