WW2 U. S. Army Air Force B-17 Bomber Oxygen Cylinder Tank G-1 94-40321 F. S. P & Co
Item up for sale is a spectacular vintage low pressure oxygen cylinder tank made for us on a B-17 “Flying Fortress” bomber aircraft in WW2. These tanks were used because of the limitations in the design of the aircraft so to breathe at high altitudes would require oxygen tanks on the aircraft. This piece is a pea green coloration and is marked with a marking of “G-1 94-40321″. Tank shows paint wear from age and use. A rubberized hose is still attached to the top valve though we have no idea if it is original to the piece or not. The cylinder itself measures 29 top to bottom(including top and lower valves). Wonderful piece that comes fresh to the market from a recent estate buyout where it had been in storage for some quite time. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. PLEASE NOTE This tank has NOT been pressure tested so if you wish to use it for it’s intended purpose PLEASE have it inspected by a qualified technician before use.
