    Our son just returned to B52s after being an Air Liaison Officer for three years. He is hard to buy for so looking for parts (small) or instruments or anything unique that would make a great gift as a paperweight or something to hang on the wall. Not sure if there are any sites to check. Any help is appreciated and no idea too wacky

    Try Wentworth Aircraft Salvage or Aviation Warehouse. You may not find a WW2 relic at the first place but you may find a basic flight instrument or piece of an airplane. Also try E Bay.

    I would have to agree with looking on eBay. You can find just about anything. I found enough WWII aircraft instruments there to put together an entire control panel
