PROPELLOR RFC RAF LUFTSTREITKRAFTE AIRCRAFT
WW1 GERMAN GOTHA V BOMBER PROPELLER
This is believed to be the only surviving Gotha bomber propeller.
The prop is in superb condition and not only is it undamaged but all the data on the hub is clear and it also
carries two intact decals. Again these are believed to be the only known examples of the Gotha decal. The decals
show Gotha's first aircraft flying over Schloss where the company was formed. Gotha made some propellers for
their own aircraft but the majority of the props they used came from the manufacturer Heine. This is a excellent
show piece propeller and has the characteristic WW1 German pattern of alternating dark/light woods that make them
so visually attractive.
