A couple of new arrivals:
Friction Jet Plane with Ejecting Pilot
Nomura, Japan.
When lever is pulled or when rubber nose of plane bumps into something, the canopy opens and the pilot in his chair eject.

Sparking Friction Airplane
Made in Japan

Neat piece, as wheels turn, visible motor sparks and turns as does the propeller.

I thought I would post a link to a video of the Yonezawa American Airlines plane pictured (several posts) above because the action is so cool.
The stewardess closes the door and the little people fill the seats, the inboard engines start, then the outboard engines, the plane zooms around, slows down as the outboard engines stop, followed by the inboard engines and the stewardess opens the door.
The video is of my plane pictured above but was posted by the previous owner.

Couldn't seem to get the embed code right.

There are two versions of the box that I know of for that Nomura (T.N.) U.S. Air Force 1517 helicopter. The helicopters have only slightly different rotors.

There is also a rare Canadian Air Force version of this toy, but I've only seen it once (without the original box). It brought big bucks.
