All,

 

I hope your weekend went well. I just picked up this MB-3 flight helmet but the odd thing it is black. I know most are white so that is what made this one particularly interesting. I hope yall enjoy seeing this rare bird and can provide more information!

Just a thought... maybe theres a connection between Arclight SAC missions and having the helmet black. They did have to repaint the B-52s underneath black for night camo. Maybe crews liked to distinguish themselves from other SAC crews?.... sounds pretty cool.
