Testing a Flight Helmet in 1912...


As a personal project, I've been systematically reading the 104 years of back issues of Flight (now Flight International) Magazine This was in the 6 April 1912 edition.

That's exactly how I do too (:-)

Thanks for the pic. Is there an online archive, do you work in a library, or ....

Cheers,

You are most welcome!

Go here...
http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/index.html

look in the right column for "Aviation History by Year" and click on "Show all Years"

Each page is a individual PDF.

If you want to search the collection, use the information I posted in this post.

While I read, I'm gathering the addresses of the Scale Drawings and posting them in a thread in the 3-views Forum.

Yeah ... I have days like that too.

I never thought of it as a spectator sport.

I woulod suggest that maybe we could get uniforms in addition to helmets ... and then I remembered my time in the service. Helmets AND uniforms.
