A beautifully sculptural piece of aviation history from the First World War.
A truly massive propellor that can be wall mounted.
The Bristol Scout was a single-seat rotary-engined biplane originally designed as a racing aircraft. Like similar fast, light aircraft of the period it was used by the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Flying Corps as a "scout", or fast reconnaissance type. It was one of the first single-seaters to be used as a fighter aircraft, although it was not possible to fit it with an effective forward-firing armament until the first British-designed gun synchronisers became available later in 1916, by which time the Scout was obsolescent.
This piece will require our White Glove delivery service. Due to the size and weight it will require a private courier. Please contact us prior to purchasing to make shipping or collection arrangements.
Please note the final image is an example of the type of plane that this propellor would have been fitted to and is not the original plane. We were unable to find records of which plane this was originally fitted to.
