RAF pilots control column

Code: 10465


RAF, BAC jet provost pilots control column.

The Provost is a British jet trainer aircraft that was in use with the Royal Air Force from 1955 to 1993. In addition to the multiple RAF orders, the Jet Provost, sometimes with light armament, was exported to many air forces worldwide. The design was also further developed into a more heavily armed ground attack variant under the name BAC Strikemaster.

This control column has been carefully removed from the aircraft cockpit, probably during its scrapping. It is in a very good original condition with the crinkle grip finish still intact and the original black paint still covering most of the column. The top part moves easily from side to side and the stick top buttons still work. 

Quite a heavy item (4.5 kgs).
