Navy Squadron Painted Pilot's Flight Helmet, APH-5, Aviator This is a Vietnam War era U. Navy squadron painted APH-5 flight helmet.I'm not sure which squadron this was, but the visor housing was painted a medium blue with white stars. The helmet shell was painted a light blue with white stars and swirls or horns on the sides.
It later had reflective tape added over the painted design. The helmet is almost in relic condition, but it is really an interesting helmet. It would display well with some clean up or maybe even some restoration of the interior.The visor is in excellent condition and works smoothly. There may be a few items that are listed in both categories. Be sure to c heck out my other listings because I have all kinds of interesting items.
