Can anybody help me with these vaneaxial fans?

Here they are. I have 4 of them. Also pictured is the box I found them in. The box is addressed to Vought Aeronautics Grand Prairie, Texas from the Goodyear Aerospace Corporation Akron, Ohio. Cannot find any information on them other then what is on the labels on the side of each one. I am curious what they were used for , what they could be used for (rc hovercraft? Drone?) and just any general information anyone may have on them. I cannot find much via google and i am a total newb at this. This is my first post... on any forum...ever. Please forgive me.... Go easy.... Any information is greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. Take care everyone.

They are aircraft parts and look very similar to some toilet vent fans which are/were fitted to some aircraft. You'll struggle to use them for modelling purposes as they require 200 Volts 3 phase AC to run.

The 6643 stamp says they were made in the 43rd week of 1966. The 400 cps (cycles per second) backs that date up. We call it Hz these days. They are definitely aircraft parts as that is the frequency used by aircraft power systems.

And as such they won't withstand RC rpms.
