Parachute harness heaven !!
« on: April 15, 2014, 03:40:08 AM »
Ok, thought it would be a good time for us all to show off our parachute harnesses !

I only have the one at the moment ,and as we all know ,these don't come cheap, but they do finish off that Fighter jock / aircrewman display

im just in the process of obtaining the correct  chute pack for this particular example , and when it arrives ill post some pics of it !

anyhow  ,lets  GO !!!

ill kick it off with the  YELLOW GROUP TYPE A4  QAC

This type was derived from the RAF Observer type harness

CONTD. reverse of the harness  showing the zippered covering of the backpad   this apparently was also a means of storing the harness as it turns in on itself and can be packed away into itself and zipped up !!

Gentlemen, I figured I should post this one up here.  This is my QAC red group chute and harness.  Shown with an A2 jacket, b2 cap and B3 mae west.
Always on the lookout for USAAF flight gear and anything pertaining to the Aleutians Campaign.

Here is a comparison of two red group harnesses.  One with painted group color and other with stitched webbing.
