Legality of selling F35 lightning helmet

Recommended Posts

I've come across part of a F35 Lightning helmet, mostly the carbon fiber part, no electronics.  Can I legally sell it?

If you are inside the USA selling to outside the USA then almost assuredly no (ITAR restrictions). If you are outside the USA selling to outside the USA you are beyond the legal jurisdiction of the US government, but other governments might still say no, especially significant US allies who have funded the plane. If you are selling within the USA to someone within the USA I would say its a gray area at best and still say no. There is a good chance the government could say its stolen as well... This is one of those situations where the potential issues are numerous and not worth the fight.

Thanks, guess I either hold onto it as a cool conversation piece or i see if the manufacturer would potentially buy it back.

I'm not really into hardware, more interested in aircraft technical manuals, but that's a nice find.
