QAC Parachute and Harness


Recommended Posts

After some times searching to find the right QAC "red group" chute pack to accompany my late war marked harness I came across this guy. The chute pack was opened and canopy had been pulled out and needed a repack. I need to thank the riggers at Fort Rich/Elmendorf AFB for the repack. They did a very professional job with it and I am very humbled by their gratitude and appreciation for the piece. It is great to finally have the set up completed again. Thanks guys.

 

The chute belonged to Harlan Dean Holler. The chute pack (marked with his name came with his flight logs as well. He flew mostly B17s during the war and cargo transport for sometime afterwards in the Pacific.

 

Now it is time to working refitting my S1 seat harness with a chute pack and rip cord to bring it back to a completed state...

 

Hope ya'll enjoy.
