    Flying With The Parker 51 Vac

    I will be on a long trip coming up soon and want to take along a couple of fountain pens. Generally for a flight, I only have one pen inked and the others packed away empty. In the past, I have flown with either a Hero 616 (no big deal if it gets lost) or a Parker 21 Special. This trip, I would like to take one of my Parker 51s, specifically a 1945 '51 vacumatic. With my Hero 616 and the Parker 21 Special, all I did was make certain the pen was nib-up for the climb to altitude and again for the descent (and not in my pocket). I had no problems but both pens are aerometric fillers. I am a bit concerned that the vacumatic '51 might behave differently. Has anyone flown with a '51 Vac?

    Help Identifying Parker 51 Needed.

    Colleagues, I recently purchased on the Bay, a parker 51 but I am not sure if it is real or fake. It does have the normal Parker USA identification data etched in the body. Parker 51 USA 5 with three dots. The nib is gold but unmarked. The cap appears the way it is shown in the picture. It is a vacumatic. I am not sure but it has 7-1-7 line patterns. The cap is unmarked as made in USA, etc. I have never seen such cap materials. It appears like german silver or aluminium. Can you please help me with the identification? I will be grateful and it will help me make restore or not to restore decision.
  4. so it's been half an hour, I've cycled the plunger on my parker 51 vacumatic innumerable times, shaken it till my arms are sore, wicked and wicked and wicked with a tissues...AND ITS STILL SPEWING GREEN INK T_T. anyone got any tricks to flush these pens? haha
