I recently saw an online auction for an orange USN/USMC torso parachute harness with non-adjustable upper
and lower Rocket Jet fittings. I believe the designation could be MA-1? I have also seen orange
adjustable lumbar back cushions and nylon horseshoe parachute containers used with USN/USMC Martin-Baker
ejection seats. I believe the USN started to paint their flight helmets solid orange around this time
also. Has anyone seen or have any other orange flight gear besides the items listed above. I am
familiar with the Indian orange flight suits and Mark 2 life preservers. Any help would be appreciated.
