I'm not sure if I posted the pic correctly or not.
It looks like some kind of measuring jig or something for checking the gauge size for something or maybe lineing something up.
Thin aluminum with three circular notches and also a short straight edge.
It has department of the air force and a logo printed on it .

Interesting. I'd say it's for spacing purposes maybe? Holding piping or tubing in place so it can be attached?

Where you got it or found it might be a clue.

I think it carries the wine glasses. And maybe a bottle opener?

And I couldn't find the top part of the logo anywhere, looks like a cloud with wings or something

Looks like a jet is missing a part.. Looks like something used to keep fluid lines in place or keep them from rattling at hi-speed. Cool find.

The silhouette of a plane maybe?

I wish they would give me that to get it back , doesn't seem to be that important I guess. Haven't heard of a jet crashing.

Maybe, reminds me of the stealth fighter/bomber but it's too puffy

If they wanted it...they would get it!


I've been searching and can not find anything yet. Due to it's condition maybe it was for some sort of mock up or possibly a prototype or perhaps for some R&D.

Just figured it out. It's the department of the air force's normal seal. The 2 tone treatment makes the eagle and the cloud play tricks on the eye.

It does seem like it could be for holding hydraulic lines in place. Especially with the 2 small holes at either end, like mounting points. Only problem is it's thickness. That thin metal would be a rather handy abrasion point for hoses vibrating during flight.

Possible, it doesn't look like it was used much, And for being run over probably quite a few times it's in great condition, nice powder coating,no scratches. Maybe the little holes are for mounting it Maybe a piece of the dash or console.

It might slide into slots or grooves where lines come together or junction. the lines might have a rubber grooved bushing that this slides into.
