1960s APH-5 Fighter Pilot Helmet VS-862 & Squadron Patch


Recommended Posts

This is my other helmet from LCDR O'Donnell's estate. This one was from the VS-862 Squadron. I believe this to be a short lived squadron. The helmet was painted in bright red/orange color. It reminds me of International Orange. The patch is superb and a very scarce piece too.

When I took the visor compartment off for cleaning I snapped a picture of the helmets original gold color. Inside has deterioration. Patch looks unused.
