Prior to the introduction of the Aerox system, wise pilots reserved the use of oxygen for situations where it was legally necessary, i.e. above 12,500 feet. This was often a practical decision based upon factors like: short duration of supply, uncomfortable masks, difficult & costly refills, heavy weight, and large bulk. Aerox systems address these objections with advanced designs and materials that help make oxygen use easier, more comfortable, and less expensive than ever before. Add to your flying comfort by using oxygen at altitudes as low as 5,000 feet.
This portable kit comes complete with an M-sized bottle, place regulator, and Aerox cannulas with individual flow meters. Fly safer with an Aerox Oxygen System.

In July 1943, it was convoyed to RAAF Garbutt Field in Australia to be modified at the 4th Air Depot into a terrifying C version "Straffer," the most heavily armed of the B-25s, described by the U.S. Army Air Forces as being "preferred over all other similar aircraft because of armament, speed, altitude, performance, bombing platform stability, visibility and night flight, and short field characteristics."
Then, Dirty Dora returned to New Guinea and was assigned to the 345th Bombardment Group, 499th Bombardment Squadron, where it returned to 1st Lieutenant Victor Tatelman and crew chief Sergeant Perry W. Scot and officially received that terrifying Dirty Dora livery.
Coach handbags were designed to supplement the low-margin wallet production. They were made of sturdy cowhide, in which the grain of the leather could still be seen, instead of the thin leather pasted over cardboard that was used for most women's handbags at the time.

Leopards' conservation status is "vulnerable" due to their diminishing population. There are 700,000 leopards left in the wild in Africa. These fierce animals are excellent climbers, one of Africa's best hunters, and the fifth largest cat in the world. Due to how stealthy these large cats are, they are hard to photograph.

A bottle of Soul Boxer Bourbon Old Fashioned is the cherry on top. Made with just bourbon, bitters, pure cane sugar, and a hint of cherry and orange, this cocktail has weathered the tests of time and still rolls with the punches.
This unique handcrafted pen has been made from a second world war Spitfire Propeller. Spitfire Propellers were made from many thin layers of compressed laminated birch that is impregnated with resins. This construction method was called Jablo and proved very strong.

Commander Randall "Duke" Cunningham is commonly known for flying the F-4 Phantom II in Vietnam and becoming one of two U.S. Navy ACE pilots of war. After returning from Vietnam in 1972, Duke became an instructor at the U.S. Navy's Fighter Weapons School, otherwise known as TOPGUN at Naval Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California. He served various tours with VF-154, United States Seventh Fleet, and served as executive officer/ commanding officer for the shore-based adversary squadron VF-126.
Eventually, Duke retired from the Navy with the final rank of commander in 1987, and settled in Del Mar, San Diego. He then became nationally known as a CNN commentator on naval aircraft. He received the Navy Cross once, the Silver Star twice, the air medal 15 times, and the Purple Heart for wounds he received under enemy fire.
Duke is celebrated for his sacrifice and time in the Navy. Honor Duke's service with a signed, painted pair of gray wheel chocks to hold your plane, vehicle, or trailer in place or use them as statement décor.

The 1930s were the romantic years of flight. At the start of the decade, flying was considered a life-risking experience. Beginning in 1936, Pan Am began flying across the Pacific in luxurious and enormous Clippers, built by Martin and Boeing. These Clippers flew the rich and famous to exotic locations prior to war.
The "California Clipper," otherwise known as the Boeing B-314, helped bring the Pacific service to maturity. Back then, Boeing 314s cost $620,000. In today's money this is just under ten million dollars. The Boeing B-314, photographed by Clyde Sunderland, had 74 seats and could travel up to 180 mph. It is pictured here in Pearl Harbor in 1939.
Dimensions: 37 x 46
A familiar scene is depicted here in 1944. A B-17 Flying Fortress of the American 8th Air Force, damaged and down on power and speed, has lost touch with the formation. Alone in the sky, it would be an easy attack for the enemy fighters of the Luftwaffe. Luckily, a P-51 Mustang long-range escort pilot, also low on fuel and ammunition, had assessed the B-17 and helped "ride shotgun" for the journey back to the safety of British airspace. This is a signed print by Robert Taylor.
It would be nearly impossible today to match the level of experience Col. Bud Anderson had at such a young age. He entered combat as a 22-year-old captain and returned home a 23-year-old major. His wartime duties didn't prevent him from communicating with fans of all ages. This triple ace of WWII and highest scoring living American fighter ace retired in 1972, and is a member of the National Aviation Hall of Fame. At 100 years old, Bud continues to appear in public and speak on his experiences.

The Boeing Stearman is a biplane formerly used as a military trainer aircraft for the U.S. Army Air Forces, Navy, and the Royal Canadian Air Force throughout WWII. There were 10,626 built in the U.S. in the 1930s and '40s. After conflicts resolved, these airplanes became popular as crop dusters and sports planes used for aerobatic and wing-walking use in air shows.

Light-Sport. Factory Built. Total Performance.
Fifty years ago, Dick VanGrunsven created Van's Aircraft of Aurora, Oregon. His idea of a good airplane was one that did as many things well as possible. He designed light airframes with low drag and moderate power. His design resonated with others and can be measured by the number of RV-3s, RV-4s, RV-6s, RV-7s, RV-8s, RV-9s, RV-10s, RV-12s, and RV-14s gracing the skies and the enthusiastic fervor of the pilots who fly them.
The original RV-12 took the Experimental Light-Sport Aircraft (E-LSA) market by storm in 2008. To date, more than 1,100 kits have been purchased. And there are a lot of RV-12s gracing the sky: more than 600 RV-12s are currently being flown all over the world by student pilots, sport pilots, and private pilots, and this your chance to join them!
This complete and ready-to-fly Van's RV-12iS aircraft is a two-seat all-metal side-by-side airplane with a large cabin that seats the occupants ahead of the wing spar for maximum room and superb visibility. It's powered by a modern, fuel-injected Rotax 912 iS Sport engine. These rugged little engines didn't become the worldwide standard in light-sport aircraft by accident.
Extensive real-world experience has proven it to be durable, reliable, and economical in all sorts of conditions, all over the world. The RV-12 is a rare bird: a light-sport aircraft designed, manufactured, and assembled in America.

Escape to Ambergris Cay, a private island situated roughly 600 miles southeast of Miami, Florida, with Air Journey Concierge Service.
Ambergris Cay is a private island that sits on the southeast corner of the Turks and Caicos archipelago among shallow turquoise blue waters and brilliant surrounding reefs. The island is home to only 20 villas and 10 beachfront suites, enabling visitors to experience its exclusive Caribbean charm free from crowds.
If you fly your own airplane, you can fly directly to Ambergris Cay from the U.S., though you'll need to stop at Providenciales (Provo), Turks and Caicos, for fuel and customs and integration on your way home. Otherwise, you can fly commercially into Provo, and then take a 15-minute commuter flight to the island.
Note: Bidders that do not fly themselves directly to the island will be responsible for their own arrangements to Provo. Ambergris Cay will donate/arrange the commuter flight from there to the island.
