    I got another aircraft relic in the mail today. This is a relic section of an aircraft propeller, and it was supposedly recovered from the Pitomnik airfield in Stalingrad. The construction of it is interesting. It a wooden propeller covered by some type of heavy duty plastic, and on one side I can see a few numbers. My guess is that it came off of a Fi156, but theres really no telling what plane its from. If the story about it being found at the Pitomnik airfield is true, I would guess its from a German plane. Many Luftwaffe planes were wrecked/destroyed there. Anyways, I thought I would share it with you guys. Let me know what you think.

    Are you sure it's part of a propeller? To my eye it doesn't really look like it is. Wooden aircraft propellers would be laminated sections of wood. But it may be a part of an aircraft, some Russian aircraft of the 1940's were still partly made of wood I seem to remember. Part of an early Lavochkin?

    I think its a part of a propeller, but I could be off though. Im just judging by the looks of it, and the sellers description. I do think the construction of it is interesting. Like you said most wooden aircraft propellers are laminated wood. This is wood, but its encased in some type of hard wax like plastic. It could possibly be from a Lavochkin, that would be cool.
