A neighbor to the shop is an avid collector of airplane parts particularly from the WWII era. This wing tip is from the first flight of DC planes designed for United Airlines. These planes were made in Santa Monica, CA and we’re happy to have some California aeronautical history here in the shop. Please call us or email the shop (415) 400 4299 regarding this aluminum wing-tip.
UPDATE: A new wingtip is being delivered last week (as of January 28, 2011), they sell fast! Please get in touch if interested. We will send you photos of the current ‘tip.
