    What aircraft are they from? The only one I know is the fourth pic (P-38), and that's because I read it! These are neat collectibles without a doubt. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers Nathan, the P38 grip is pretty much two Mustang grips on a yoke, a very comfortable arrangement. The second is Harvard, like a Spitfire but not as rare! I'll leave the others for guesses!

    No. 1 is an F-16 stick, No.5 is from a Bristol Blenheim, not sure about no. 3.
    A nice collection.

    Cheers, Willie.

    Spot on Willie. Now that's lovely M3, and very complete. It must be a joy to sit in! What's the danger with the wing sweep? If I'm reading the label right. The GR1 was the last RAF 'Dunlop' grip in RAF service, before the Dowty GR4 here. Grip 3 is a formation keeping stick from a B17 and probably others. I think it nudged the autopilot on long flights.

    The danger with the wing sweep is that one of the Hydraulic pipes is missing so if someone was to put a Hyd rig on it, we're going to see a lot of oil!

    Besides that, the wings haven't moved in 13 years, although I'm sure they would without issue if the pipe was there,
