    Hi everybody,

    I find this wheel chock, steel was to be red but pink today with a "V" or "A" black, there is no more indication, we can see 3 studs for aerodrome grass (i think).

    i don't see this type of wheel chock on web, it's seems to be strengthened.

    If you have an idea on nationality, pics or another information, i'm take on ;)

    The one you have seems to be of a later design, possibly 1950s or 1960s, and a heavier construction. Luftwaffe chocks tended to be more 'open' on their construction, and lighter, like the ones in the photos posted. However, there are some features which do look similar to the Luftwaffe style.

    Interesting find!

    I have to comment - what a waste of resources!
