Solve a Mystery Win $50 (store credit)

Maybe you can identify this thing.  We haven't too much of a clue except that it is obviously some kind of LOCKHEED prototype wheel.  It is professionally cast, splined, and appears to be closely related to all other Lockheeds of the last 50 years.  However; it is not a finished product. The trim roller is a dummy, the side gizmos are chintzy and there is no means to add wiring.  Identify it and we'll send you the dough.

     

Solved!!

Thanks go to Elliot Block, who solved the mystery of the Lockheed wheel. Our suspicions were correct that it is a Lockheed prototype.

Help!

Now that we have an answer to the L-1011 prototype wheel identified by Elliot Block, we have a new mystery.

OK all you old fart ALPA members, me included, why is there a battle star on the ALPA wings shown on a document from 1968?  The only battle stars I ever saw in my career were issued to UAL striking pilots in 1985, and maybe EAL strikers as well, but not positive.   No money for this one but we'll give you "on screen" credit.

Win $50!!

Tell us what this is from; weighs 5 pounds, heavy casting. We have no idea.

Congratulations Capt. Mike Williams, DAL Ret., who identified this as a dump chute manual crank from the DC-8. It is now his.
