Description


This first-ever book explores the history, development and evolution of the United States Navy Blue Angels flight helmets, from the team's inception in 1946 to present day.

A companion book to "The Red Helmet"- History, Development and Evolution of the USAF Thunderbirds Flight Helmets," we explore the various flight helmets used throughout the Team's 75-year history. From their humble beginning when pilots wore nylon fabric helmets through the evolution to hardshell helmets constructed of fiberglass, Kevlar and high-tech resins.

Meet several Blue Angels through in-depth human interest interviews, and go behind the scenes at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, Home of the Blue Angels.

The book also includes hundreds of black & white and full-color photos of Blue Angel flight helmets from Blue Angel pilots, museums and private collections spanning 75 years.
