To celebrate the retiring of the famed Boeing 747 “Queen of the Skies” from the United fleet, MileagePlus® Exclusives is giving members a chance to own a piece of aviation history. Use your miles to take home actual hardware from a United Boeing 747-400 aircraft.
You’re bidding on a Standby Airspeed Indicator. The standby airspeed indicator is a mechanical holdover from the days before electronic displays. This one served as a backup on the 747 in the very unlikely event of an electrical failure.
All proceeds will support Air Camp, a hands-on, educational adventure in aviation and aeronautics. Air Camp inspires students at the intermediate and middle school levels, as well as teachers and educational leaders across all grades, to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) using aviation and aerospace as the medium while promoting the values of scholarship, leadership and citizenship.
Air Camp is the vision of Dayton-area leaders who want to help young people nationwide achieve their potential, develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and pursue further education and future careers in STEM-related fields, aviation, and aeronautics.
Here’s to taking home history and helping further aviation education. Bid now.
