RAF 1965 dated Mk3B Pilots helmet and throat mic with original matching serial number storage box. Here we have a lovely complete Mk3B flying helmet first issued in 1965 and last modified in 1970.It doesnt appear to have any damage other than minor flying use marks and wear. Has a boom mic fitted but also comes complete with a throat mic and soft visor cover. If feel I must point out the pilot who owned this helmet was a very heavy smoker and I guess he had it on display. It smells of nicotine and the interior is a bit smoky yellow. May come out with cleaning. The rubber on the jack plug has also deteriorated with age. Also included is the original issued and matching serial number storage box with mod card, instructions, keys and one of the pilots old flight suit knee pad inserts with details of an attack training exercise somewhere in Scotland.
Great bit of aviation history for a 50+ year old helmet. May require slightly more for outside Europe.The item "RAF AAC Pilots Flying Helmet Mk3b Large 1965 Flight Helmet & Storage Box Not WW2" is in sale since Sunday, September 23, 2018.
