Manufactured in the USA by Hamilton Standard and taken from a WW2 era Boeing B17 Flying Fortress. This type of propeller blade is known as the “paddle” type because of its distinctive broad shape great for utilising all the power from those massive Pratt & Whitney Radial engines, as well as increased performance at high altitude.
The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress a four-engined heavy bomber developed in the 1930s for the US Army Air corps. It was a well regarded aircraft and the Americans used them in large numbers on daylight bombing raids of Germany. It was believed at the time that if the aircraft adopted a “box formation” when flying their missions then each one would be able to protect the other because all sides of the B-17 are covered by machine guns including, the often weak underbelly where the B-17 had a ball turret gun.
As well as extensive use in the European theatre the B-17 also saw plenty of action in the Pacific theatre and in total almost 13,000 were produced.
As always this propeller has been chemically stripped to remove all the paint and painstakingly polished on both sides to a mirror finish.
