1950's Sperry 1544 Gyro Horizon Indicator installed in the US Navy carrier-based F-9F Grumman Panther Korean War fighter/Bomber

The Grumman F-9F Panther was one of the most succesful carrier-based fighter/bombers of the US Navy and Marine Corps and flew over 7,800 sorties during the Korean War.

Mounted in the centre of the pilot's flight instrument panel, the bottom knob adjusted the aircraft's indexing within the dial to align the perspective of the pilot to the horizon indicator.

This Sperry Gyro Artificial Horizon is in excellent condition with fully functional central knob and floating dial and carries its FAA certification stickers and was last serviced in Sept 1969.

Complete with a highly detailed scale model of this iconic US Korean fighter atop its mango wood stand and detailed laminated Fact Sheet, this Recovery Curios original aviation collectable would make the perfect gift for any aviation enthusiast. 

This Grumman F-9F Panther Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
