Description


Remarkable complete aerodynamic wind tunnel test model from Russia’s Central Institute of Aviation Motors, the largest aerospace engine testing facility in Europe. The massive aluminum test model measures approximately 10.5 feet long with a diameter of 8.5 inches, and has rotating fins at the rear which measure 26 inches across; the model weighs approximately 110 pounds. It is held in an 11–foot long heavy duty metal transport case with red “NASA” lettering on the sides, which weighs an additional 120 pounds. An apparently identical model has been used in tests conducted at NASA’s Langley Research Center Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel. In fine condition. A tremendously impressive aerospace piece. Oversized. Please contact RR Auction for a shipping quote.
