My great uncle was a B-29 mechanic while stationed in Saipan for in WWII. Came across these in a box of his stuff. Obviously the cap that says B-29 came from a Superfortress, it has 'The Crow's scratched into the back of it, and looking at the site here, the one that says Martin U.S.A. is probably from a B-29, but there is a third one that says Bell Air Craft. Any ideas what that one came off of? Possibly a B-29 also?

from the quoted magazine article in this thread;
Quote:
... and that its original yoke cap would have borne the Martin Aircraft logo as well as Boeing's. Boeing-built yoke caps read "Boeing" and "B-29." (Yet another set of B-29 yoke caps, aboard B-29s built by Bell, bore the Bell Aircraft identifier.)


sounds like a great find. 8)

Id love to find some that are for the C-97, same as these, but it depicts just the Boeing Totem.

The repros are too expensive, and for what comes to 500 bucks, I'd rather buy a more important component.
