Installed almost directly in front of the Douglas C-47 Skytrain's Engine Throttle Controls and just below the aircraft's Artifical Horizon on the main instrument panel, this rare A-20 Havoc Fuel Pressure Gauge is one of two that would monitor the fuel flow of the Havoc's twin 1,700 hp (1,300 kW) turbo-supercharged, R-2600-7 Wright engines.
Manufactured by the Electric Auto-Lite Co this 1AN 5771-1, Fuel Pressure Gauge comes complete with Manufacture's plate and is dated 1943.
Single cockpit indicators for twin engined aircraft such as the Douglas C-47 Skytrain 1AN 5771-1 were gradually updated to duel readout indicators (AN5772-1) toward the latter part of the war, often resulting in an eclectic mix of instrumentation across many Allied aircraft by wars end.
What a fantastic aviation collectable this original WWII Skytrain cockpit instrument would be with its detailed C-47 scale model, atop its 100yr old Mango Wood stand. A rare one-of-a-kind gift for any aviation enthusiast or budding, active or retired pilot.
While this model is available in the highly detailed 1/72 scale version, I do have a super detailed Giant 1/48 scale kit that features opening cargo door and D Day parachutists exiting the aircraft!
This Douglas C-47 Skytrain Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
