Does anybody know where I can get hold of a SAAF fixed wing pilot helmet with mask ? I don't have any idea of how things work in the SAAF, but I figured with the Impalas and Cheetahs retired, there should be some surplus / obsolete gear on hand. Maybe that will get sold as part of the package if they do sell the Cheetahs - does anybody have some info ?

I'll buy or trade for USAF gear from my collection.

Try BidorBuy, there were two helmet's for sale a few weeks ago. Not sure which airforce though, possibly USAF.

Was fortunate to keep my own spare from the unit I served at: 85 Combat FS

Main paint blue of the unit and the design was for ASII (Sqn Intelligence) member on unit using our mustering badge. See Below

Unfortunately Not For Sale

Received two as a gift from the Gripen Team during AAD 2006 - for support an liaison with 2 Sqn during their visit to the show at that time. We made a number of visits happen for the Gripen team, primarily aimed at hosting 2 Sqn and some senior vlammies previaously involved with the project.

No idea what they cost??
