Hi

Looking for some info on an old SAAF G suit I bought many years back if anyone can help

Its an all in one g suit with internal bladders
Has a Prima 1 Squadron badge on the right arm and a 24 Squadron badge on the right breast
What aircraft would this have been used on, surely not Buccaneers? Perhaps the F1?

Its advertised on http://www.Gumtree.co.uk Just type 1044131561 in the search box

Cheers and thanks

I am not familiar with that pattern G-suit at all, nor the helmet - I can't recall SAAF pilots wearing one-piece suits - in my time on Mirage F1AZs at 1 Sqn they all wore the type that went around the waist and down the legs over the standard Nomex flying suit.
The cloth badge is not that of 24 Sqn but of 83 Jet Flying School which flew Impalas from AFB Langebaanweg.

Hi

Thanks for that. The plot thickens. I will have to do some homework on it now. The label is in French which he said was to do with the Mirage.
The guy I bought it from said it was ex SAAF. The helmet is an old Chopper helmet just used for display purposes.

Thanks for the help
