British United Airways pilot wing

British United Airways pilot wing

Code: U19685


Padded bullion wire pilot wing on black felt with cotton backing. Approximately 11.5cm span.  Very good condition.  British United Airways (BUA) was a private independent airline formed in 1960 as a result of the merger between Airwork Services and Hunting Clan Aviation.  At the time it was the largest wholly independent British airline.  BUA was sold to the Scottish charter airline Caledonian Airways in November 1970 making these wings relatively scarce due to the short period they were used.  These came from a pilot with the airline who had flown Lancasters during WW2.  Stock code U19685.
