A-10 helmets keep pilots connected
Airman 1st Class Marthinus Coetzee, 23d Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment specialist, performs a 30-day inspection on an HGU-55/P helmet 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. After every 30 days of use, AFE Airmen disassemble, clean and inspect every component of the helmet and mask. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Hayden Legg)
