This is an original USN or USAF Corsair II Attack Fighter Aircraft Carrier Jet Tailhook Assembly. It is attached to the tail of the aircraft. The tailhook is used to catch a wire to stop the aircraft while landing on the aircraft carrier. The assembly is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. It is 38 x 8 x 8 inches and weighs 42 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.
