A very interesting and rare photo showing a group of USAF Florida ANG pilots with 1 st generation 1946-47 hard hat flight helmets. Early jet flight helmets were built from mining hard hats  or army helmets and these types are shown here. Some are attached onto top of ANH-15 cloth flight helmets. The pilot in middle with a moustache has a rare experimental B-1 flight helmet, predecessor to the P-1 series. All have A-14 oxygen masks. Some pilots have high altitude bottles sewed to their AN-6510 seat and B-10 backpack parachute harnesses, most have B-5 LPU others have B-4 type. All wear G-3/A anti g suits. Flight suits are presumed to be K-1 and A-4.
