Can you ID this flight helmet?


Recommended Posts

1967 photo of VF-21 XO J. P. Skyrud wearing an unusual (to me) flight helmet.


The XO is on the side of an F-4 Phantom.


Any thoughts on this helmet?

Looks to be 2 different helmets...And planes....the pic on the left shows a visor cover screwed on...maybe a APH-5....the second pic looks like an exposed visor...or has a modified visor housing

The first pic he his climbing up the telescoping steps on the front cockpit of an F4...the second pic looks like he is on a ladder for the rear cockpit...so maybe nit the same helmet in both pics

2 # pilots, 2 # helmets


It's an APH-5 without visor cover.


Rails are still in place. A few modifications to prevent visor to leave... & we have the first APH lightweight !
