A World War II laminated mahogany propeller from a Airspeed AS.10 Oxford Cheetah 'X' propeller, circa 1940.

The twin engine Oxford (nicknamed the ‘Ox-box’) was used to prepare complete aircrews for RAF’s Bomber Command and as such could simultaneously train pilots, navigators, bomb aimers, gunners, or radio operators on the same flight. In addition to training duties, Oxfords were used in communications and anti-submarine roles and as air ambulances.

In 1941, the aviatrix Amy Johnson went missing in an Airspeed Oxford, presumably crashing into the Thames Estuary.

Although the Oxford was equipped with fixed-pitch wooden propellers the cockpit contained a propeller pitch lever which had to be moved from “Coarse” to “Fine” for landing. This was done to reinforce this important step for training pilots.

With fixing for wall mounting.
