I know the subject of American flyers is a little off the subject of the RAF Forum but bearing in mind the amount of RAF flying equipment used by the Americans I would like to draw your attention to the new Red Tails movie portraying the Tuskegee African American pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group. For those interested in my reproduction helmets and who have not yet seen one, this film showcases them very nicely! When I was originally approached by the costume designer, Alison Mitchell, to produce flying helmets for the film I was amazed to see the numbner of original photographs she had ammassed showing a complete mix of flying equipment. These men were wearing every type of flying helmet both RAF and American available up to that time. Even an RAF B type helmet was clearly visible in the photographs. Anyway, shameless advert over. As expected, quite a bit of CGI but, nevertheless a very watchable film.
