This is an original USN or USAF Corsair II Attack Fighter Aircraft Carrier Jet Tailhook Assembly. This is attached to the Tail of the aircraft which is used to catch a wire to stop the aircraft while landing on the aircraft carrier. The hook is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. It is 40 x 8 x 8 inches and weighs 42 1/2 pounds. I don’t believe there are any more of these aircraft flying. This would be a great item for someone who collects, A-7E parts, warbirds, and cockpit parts. Thank you for your interest in my auctions.
