Australian flightgear collection

Collecting flightgear for preservation purposes, display and reenactment is a growing trend worldwide. This is reflected in a almost constant demand/supply operation as seen on ebay and military / flightgear dealer websites.

In Australia there are a few people who collect flightgear. One such collector has allowed us an insight to their flightgear collection. They has brought and acquired some interesting flight helmets, with a large RAAF heritage connection.
