WASP Pilot Aviation Mug

g171This ceramic aviation mug is a tribute to the WASP pilots, Women Airforce Service Pilots, which flew warbird planes during WWII. The mug image is taken from an actual photo of 4 WASP pilots, from left, Frances Green, Margaret (Peg) Kirchner, Ann Waldner, and Blanche Osborn departing the B-17 aircraft, Pistol Packin’ Mamma. These female pilots played an important role during WW II ferrying all types of aircraft right out of the factory to free up male pilots for combat missions. There were over 25,000 applicants with 1,830 being accepted for training. Of these, 1,074 passed flight training and joined the air force.

The 11 ounce WASP Aviation Mug is ideal for your favorite cup of joe or other beverages. The cup handle and cup rim are a burgundy color which complement the black and white image that is shown on both sides of the mug. This mug is lead free, dishwasher safe and microwavable safe.

The Sopwith Camel was a British World War I biplane fighter aircraft, and recalls the early days of aviation. It helps to evoke the nostalgia of aerial “dogfights.” This replica Sopwith Camel Airplane Propeller is crafted from solid wood, like the original, and displays the same interesting contoured shape found on many Sopwith Camel aircraft.

Large Vintage Wooden Airplane Propeller

P133Customer’s often ask for recommendations when selecting a decorative wood propeller. This large, over 6 feet, Vintage Wood Propeller is our most popular propeller. The excellent craftsmanship, as noted in the product description, is one reason for its popularity. Another reason is the fact that the antique brass edging goes over both the front and back of the leading edge. Some propellers have the brass edge on only the front of the blade. This makes the Vintage Wood Propeller much more realistic as it is closer to replicating real early day propellers. Please call 800-Tailwinds (1-800-824-5946) or email with any questions about our line of decorative propellers.
