Moving overseas and getting rid of a bunch of stuff.

This is a complete tail hook from a Douglas A-4 Skyhawk. It has the expected amount of dirty, rust and chips from being in my garage for 20 years.

This chucklenut in San Diego wants $1000 for his and mine is darn site better than that!

I'm willing to let mine go for $600, OBO.

Buyer must pickup in Occoquan, VA.

nice, we used to have one of these on top of the fireplace mantle at my flight school house in meridian. Pretty cool bit of memorabilia. Well worth asking price for someone who can pickup.

I came across a pile of these, driving around the NAS Pensacola Marina after graduating AOCS Class 15-81. Took about 5 or six of them. My best friend has one, I am getting ready to permanently display the 2 polished ones I held onto. Chrome/ moly steel polishes up like chrome-plating, and the attachment point has a real nice brass bushing! Does any deckhand know after how many traps the Scooter Tailhook had to be replaced?
