My 2nd USN VA-42 helmet

I think this one was intended for the A-1 Skyraider. This squadron flew both the A-6 and the A-1 in the early to mid 1960s.
Here is a link to the thread covering the first helmet.
Here is a few pics of the new helmet.

Nice old school mask retention assemblies, the Hardman and Sierra self adjust receivers.

Nice! The helmet hunt has been slim lately for me. We will see what the future holds!

Now I need to locate a visor knob and a boom mic.
I wonder if there is a significance to the different colors of the lightning bolts on the visor covers. Could one color be for A-6s and the other for A-1s ???
