AAC & AAF Flight Helmets and Headgear


Recommended Posts

I wanted to share my collection of AAC & AAF headgear and helmets in hopes that others will do the same. Always like seeing all the variants, if you have anything to contribute I would love to see 'em.

 

I finally got around to ordering a few more heads so I can display more gear at once and keep the forms on my leather helmets. They all seemed to work pretty well but for one of the size small helmets I ended up having to custom crush one of the heads into shape for the helmet to fit.

 

So here they are....

 

..............

 

B5 Flight Helmet, AN6530 Goggles, A10a O2 mask (straps rotted away years ago, still looking for a replacement set), ANB-H-1

Headset.
