Introduction


This is a photograph Paul took of the RAAF F/A-18 display pilot's helmet as worn for 20th Anniversary celebrations this year. The helmet was worn by SQNLDR Paul Simmons, who flew the aircraft at the Australian International Airshow, Avalon, Victoria.

Paul advises me that he actually painted the helmet himself - well done mate! (Note: the painted mask is NOT approved for operational use). Paul states this photograph was taken by himself the day after the Hornet arrived back at 2OCU after its repaint.

Very creative photography Paul!
