questions about switlik parachute 1946


Recommended Posts

I bought this parachute 2 years ago on Ebay and cant find information or pictures from a pilot wearing the chute?

I dont know in what for aircraft is was used and if it was for a bomber crew or a fighter pilot.

some people say that it was used in thunderbolts after the war

who can help my?

It is a quick-attachable type made for civil aviation and would not have been used in a military capacity.

WWII Parachutist

As Paul stated, this is a civilian rig and not military issue. I have seen a handful of these in use, but this was not at all common and an extremely rare occurrence.
