    this looks the same as a De Havilland Mosquito control wheel to me. this would explain why the bomb release is there. the pilot was also the bomb aimer on the Mossy. Bomber versions had no guns. so no need for a fire button. just microphone and bomb release

    Here are some pictures...
    Think the Ref No. 5D/553 could help to identify this aircraft. What does "A crown M" mean?
    Thanks for any help!

    Kurrtl

    the crown with A M. means it was made for the British Air Ministry.
    i think this was not used on parts made after 1943.

    So was it a standard switchbox for something? It's not possible to put a link to a certain aircraft with these numbers? Kurtl

    Nils,

    was this a switch for fuel tanks or bombs?

    i guess the "P" or "S" is for port and starboard.

    Roy,

    it´s a bomb release switch. I thinks the numbers on the top (5,6,7,8) show the bomb rack number, the below numbers show the bomb weight in pound.

    Where do you see a "P" and a "S" ?
    When i´m blind, i think too that this means the side ;-)

    WNF - 08.08.2007, 20:38


    i can see the "P" and the "S" to :D



    Re: Control wheel of unknown bomber

    Roy N - 08.08.2007, 20:41


    P and S is on the bomb selector.

    it had to be for fuel or bombs as it gives weight
    for example P250= port 250LB



    Re: Control wheel of unknown bomber

    Pathfinder - 08.08.2007, 20:42


    you are right, now i see the numbers too :n156:

    then the bomber had three racks on each side !



    Re: Control wheel of unknown bomber

    Roy N - 08.08.2007, 20:43


    just seen your post :D

    i said earlier that the control wheel looked to be from a mosquito.
    i dont remember ever seeing a mossy with an external bomb load.
    i only remember them with wing tanks.
    could easily be wrong though.
    another possibility is that it could be that the switches are from another AC. one with a 2,000LB (910kg) bomb load

    here a photo from other model of 5D/553 (4-Way Selector Switchbox, Type C)
    This plate indicate that this unit was fitted to an Avro Anson

    I believe that the bomber just had two racks on each side. Outside rack it could carry 250 lbs OR 500 lbs, inside rack only 250 lbs. Think the pilot first switched the desired position down and later on pressed the trigger on the wheel - bombs of selected rack were dropped. Make sense?

    So now let's find out what a/c had such racks.

    Roy N - 10.08.2007, 20:08


    Kurtl,

    im not sure that it would make sense..
    if you selected (for example) just port bombs for dropping then you would have a badly balanced plane. the weight of the starboard bombs would still be there.
    i think the switches would select an equal bomb load from each wing and drop both. no need for each to have a different switch, it would be dangerous.
    do you see what i mean?.

    i think this is for an internal bomb load. there would still be selector switches for those.
    notice the switches are labeled from 5 to 8. there should be a 1 to 4 as well i think.

    Roy
