  1. Wonderful photo… this aircraft in the back has been discussed also on our international F-104 Society website. It was one of the test aircraft.

    Stu,

    This photo is very interesting cause the O2 mask connected to the black Toptex seems to be a Quick-Donning MBU-5/P prototype !

    • Thanks Cedric,
      you always have the eye for the detail, these things are lost on me, I know nothing about masks, helmets, its something I must look into in the future. Thanks for posting.
      All the best
