What is it?

Examine this object and tell us what you think it is - or what it came from - in the comments section below.

We will post the answer and the full story next week!

This is #10 in the Education team's Collection Detection series, where we look at an unusual collection item and the story behind it.


Phillip Smith

Looks to be part of an aircraft sub frame usually hidden under rag and dope.


It is part of an aircraft wing rib, probably WW1 vintage. A wild guess would be that it is from the AWM's recently restored Albatross.
