Part with a marking to identify

Hi all,

although there is a balkenkreuz, I am not convinced this comes from a German aircraft.

Look at the "C" marking that may be a clue.

Your opinion, gentlemen ?

Thanks

GC

That does not look like a piece of German aircraft to me!

I am afraid that it is a fake.

The prefix 206 seems to suggest that this is a Bell H-58.

The part numbers are not German and the circle with the inspectors stamps - is that NA? Could be North American??

It is a post war piece of wreckage or scrapyard junk that has been painted to represent something it is not.

Thanks for your comments, Andy.

Yes, this part is puzzling, if I may say so..

Hey Andy,

the French Air Force did use NA57 / NA64, which were flown after 1940 by the Luftwaffe, thus repainted with German markings.

Would this make sense ?

Cheers

Gilles

I don't think so.

But I am willing to be proven wrong!
