Avro Vulcan XA903 RAF Aircraft Pilot Flight Flying Helmet + Oxygen Mask Mk3A. Flight Helmet & Mask Set. Complete with cloth helmet bag and hard case PLUS some very interesting flight test history! This helmet was issued to a Rolls Royce Civilian Flight Test Engineer in 1975 and was used mainly during flight trials of the RB199 (Tornado) engine in Vulcan Flying Test Bed XA903 from 1975 to 1978. The previous owner of this helmet wore it while flying flight test and evaluation sorties in the rear crew position of XA903.
It was also later used for helicopter flight trials when it was modified with the boom mike presently fitted. In this configuration it has flown in, amongst others, the Civilian Blackhawk S-70C used as the RTM322 flying test bed and also in several Lynx Helicopters including G-LYNX. Overall a very good used as flown condition.
