Vintage Target Technology 26 Inch Wood Military Drone Propellor
A very nice Vintage Target Technology 26 Inch Wood Military Drone Propellor. This propellor is known as an Ultralight UAV:
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, commonly referred to as drones. They have been used for a variety of purposes, including target drones, weather information, aerial photography.
A rare thing, especially as this one doesn’t ever seem to have seen service. Before the current vogue for jet powered drones, little prop versions such as the FERRANTI PHOENIX amongst others were used.
Prop drones were used as early as WW2, and there is a famous photo of Marilyn Munro holding a similar sized drone propellor.
A very nice item and interesting technological collectible, which would look great gracing an office or man cave wall if you don’t happen to have a military drone to hand!
