A-10 helmets keep pilots connected
Airman 1st Class Marthinus Coetzee, 23d Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment specialist, inspects a pilot's locker after setting up a helmet for day flying Feb. 13, 2020, at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia. The helmet provides A-10C Thunderbolt II pilots a central interface for everything they need, from oxygen supply to communications to flight instruments. Airmen assigned to the 23d OSS AFE shop are responsible for maintaining, disinfecting and configuring the helmet system before every flight. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Hayden Legg)
