Aircraft Whistlers

Does anyone know if these exist or they have found a suitable whistle to mount on a warbird. I have a small whistle I got off e-bay but it is too small and doesn't give off a sound that is audible. I did fit part of a funnel to it to channel the air but to little effect. I think a warbird screaming through the flight line would be great.

You might be able to use a deer whistle and then modify it if necessary to get the frequency down a bit. They aren't too big and should crank out a good volume at normal warbird speeds.
BTW, they are usually mounted in the grills of cars/trucks to try to minimize collisions....
