An absolutely amazing collection of flight helmets.  That  may be THE most comprehensive anywhere.

You should consider writing an illustrated book on USN flight helmets of WW2! Schiffer publishing would do a good job of it!  ;)

Thanks guys, it is a labor of love :). A lot of them are named and researched. Time would be an issue to put a book together. With a full time job, 2 little kids and a commute in the Bay area my free time is rare :)
