Bombphoons Vintage Aviation Memorabilia to cease trading in October 2019

Dear Friends,
It is planned to close down both my trading website and Museum in October 2019.

Those of you who have visited my Museum over the years will know just how large and extensive my collection of Aviation Memorabilia truly is and it is my intention to keep just a tiny proportion for my personal collection. I am currently in the process of talking with various third parties who have the capability to either utilise, or sell the remainder on my behalf. There will many hundreds (nee thousands) of rare and super rare pieces of Aviation History coming on to the collectors market in the future and you will be kept updated. The vast majority of my collection both on my website or in my Museum will be available at very, very low prices, mostly at cost.

In the lead up to the final close down date, if you wish to visit me personally to view and discuss the purchase of these rare pieces please email me (not phone) - bombphoons@hotmail.com and we'll arrange getting together at my Museum. If you're unable to visit then please email me and we'll work together through that medium.

The closure's of my website and Museum are purely down to my long-term mental health issues, and it is this that has prompted my decision. I know from my communications with many of you over the years, that my decision won't come as a complete surprise and I thank you for your support with my problems over the years.
Speak soon,

Hello to everyone from Caron & Ian Wilson.

The World of Collecting Vintage Aviation Memorabilia is possibly the most Interesting, Exciting and Diverse there is! Different Era's, Squadron's, Aircraft, Countries, Equipment, RFC, RAF, Luftwaffe, Flying Helmet, Oxygen Mask, Goggles, Cockpit Clock, Flying Boots.... and the list goes on.

Our intention is to offer Aviation Enthusiasts and Collectors around the World the most varied and interesting items we can find. When we say "find" we mean that quite literally, we won't be sitting around waiting for a TypeD Oxygen Mask to drop on our laps! Caron and I have given up our full-time jobs, bought a motorhome and plan to visit ALL of the major UK & European Militaria Fairs, Antique & Collector Fairs, Private Auctions, Flea Markets etc.

We will scour every nook and cranny to find you the collector, the type of Aviation items you tell us you are after. Send us your 'wish-list' and we'll do our best on your behalf. From Flying Helmets to Cockpit Clocks, Fug Boots to Scramble Bells - Whatever we find, you will find on the Bombphoons website at some stage. 1914-1945, Axis or Allied, Issued or Private Purchase, Mint or Relic, we will find it.

Bombphoons will also offer a Money Back Guarantee if you are not totally satisfied with your purchase.

One last thing; I am a Collector too. I am always willing to buy or trade for any Hawker Typhoon/Tempest and 2nd Tactical Air Force items for my own display, and we're also interested in buying any items for the website too.

Caron and I look forward to working with you.
