  2. Good morning all, and above all Tom. I'm here, I'm Giulio from Italy and I'm still the owner of this flight helmet and goggles. Is a great surprise to read what Tom wrote.

In one of their expedition they found this p-40 that was missed june, 26 1942 with pilot MIA.

  8. I have already posted it on WAF but I think this forum is mor appropriate, I new here and hope this is the right section.
