We have just been given a wooden propeller and would like to identify possible aircraft uses.
It is marked-
Z8030 then some unintelligible numbers
D5.75
P3.27
97683
and the remains of a decal for 'The Airscrew Co & JICWOOD Ltd, Weybridge.

Thank you for any help available

The drawing number doesn't appear on this long list (http://www.woodenpropeller.com/Britishprops.htm), but if some of the numbers are unintelligible then you have to wonder about the other numbers that seem to be.

Can you post a photo of the prop and a close-up of the numbers? I can't tell you how many times we've tried to track down numbers only to find that they weren't the correct ones.

And please photograph the decal. I haven't seen this variation of the Airscrew Co decal before.

With kind regards

Bob

I don't have that drg no listed. It is post WW2 and for a small light aircraft. The shortest Airscrew Co prop I have recorded is 6ft for the Auster; c.f. yours at five ft nine ins.

Sorry for the slow response but have been away. Please find attached photographs. I did check the list before asking the question.

Hi,

There are some 69" x 39" props (and other approaching size and pitch) on Luton LA4 a/c fitted with a Lycoming O-145-A2 (from list by FAA "ENGINES AND PROPELLERS FITTED TO LAA AIRCRAFT").

Regards,
