Cockpit Aluminum Table Clock
- 12 X 6 1/2 X 4 inches
- Polished aluminum
Harking back to the golden days of aviation, this table clock is cast from an original World War II United States Air Force aircraft steering yoke. With its vintage instrument dial and hands, the polished aluminum finish gives this retro styling a modern-day feel. We dare you to not grab the controls and attempt to fly this baby.
In its extensive holdings of documents related to aeronautics, the National Archives keeps in trust records that begin with those of the National Advisory Committee which was formed in 1915 to study problems in flight and to conduct research in aeronautics. NASA records are also held at the National Archives, as is the Wright brothers’ patent for their flying machine.
