USCG Flight Helmet

I suppose it would depend on what collars you're using. I've never heard of the HGU-56 interfering with our (Army) LPU-40 collars. They didn't say anything about it during ALSE school and it worked fine during our equipment demos. Same goes for dunker.

Interesting that on the cover of Approach Magazine, showing a US Navy Flag officer at the controls of a US Navy helicopter - wearing an HGU-56/P helmet without the awful white reflective tape - hopefully this is a positive change in policy:

I smile a little bit seeing this. We were called pariahs and cowboys at 85 when we pushed so hard for this helmet. Now folks with some real weight may actually be understanding why it’s such a better helmet.

Not sure which series H-60 he’s riding in, but it’s not a Romeo or Sierra. The window has the orange window jettison strap, and the back cover shows the CAAS cockpit. Curious.

Let's Zapruder this. Per the caption, it's of photo of RDML Tynch, currently CTF-73. Also the CAAS has vertical screen, so it's not CAAS, which rules out Army and USCG birds. Has rotor brake, so also not an Army bird. My guess is export Seahawk, maybe Royal Singapore Air Force, since that's where -73 is.

Good to see that Joey can still manage to scam a flight or two. Back in 2018 he flew an S-70i with the Royal Brunei AF. Looks like the Approach cover could be from then. Here's another a pic with the RBAF:

I was close! Then all the helmet speculation doesn't matter because it was probably pool gear from RBAF, from 2 years ago.

EDIT: Also my super power is niche S-70/H-60 variant scanning. The History of the Hawk book does a decent job.
