See the equipment section to see examples of the sacks as they were shipped. $225
TA-1045   Fantastic panel removed from the side of an Aircraft from one of the most famous WWI Aviation Films. This panel comes from the N28, the "Hero" mount of Errol Flynn (coded with letter "N") in the movie. While it didn't actually fly, there are numerous scenes where we can see Flynn climbing in and out of the plane and the plane taxiing with Flynn inside (probably being pushed on the ground). Used in the movies were WWI Nieuport 28's (4 of them) owned by the movie aviator Garland Lincoln/Paul Mantz. This was the last movie (except for one of them) these planes appeared in, so it still retains the movie camouflage from 1938 (although worn after 70 years). After the movie, they resided in storage at Orange County airport, and eventually they were sold by Mantz/Tallman and went to different private collectors.
This particular panel was from the N28 restored in the UK in the 90's, flown for awhile, and now on display at the Army Air Force Museum. As seen in the pictures, the panels were on the bare shell of the plane before being removed for the restoration of the plane. This piece measures 18" x 27".  $1250
