The flight helmets worn by US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps pilots, as well as the unique space helmets worn by NASA astronauts, have been of great interest to collectors for decades, leading Alan R. Breuninger to write an authoritative reference book on the subject in 1996. This "JET AGE FLIGHT HELMETS" USAF USN USMC PILOT NASA ASTRONAUT REFERENCE BOOK is in near mint, unread condition, with only some light scattered storage wear evident (most pictured).Otherwise, the book is in near mint shape, with no other damage.
