ORIGINAL WWII US AIRPLANE WING SKIN FROM F6F3 HELLCAT: This is a fantastic find!  A larger piece of aircraft aluminum wing panel from a WWII F6F3 Hellcat fighre plane. This plane had crashed in Lake Michigan in WWII.  The fighter plane had a storied combat history before it was used to train pilots on carrier landings in WWII.  Recovered from 250 of icy cold water several years ago, the plane itself has been fully restored and is now on exhibit in the Pearl Harbor museum. The wing panel shows age & typical mottled underwater wear, but still retains part of its US “Star” emblem as well as the legend “Ammunition Box Door” stenciled on.  The piece measures approx 16.25 “ x 45” this historic item would be the centerpiece for any WWII aviation display.
