Innovations in kit and personal equipment have evolved to keep pace with the ever-improving technology and performance of aircraft. Over the last one hundred years, aviation has gone through some considerable changes, and as aircraft designs improved, so too did the kit used by pilots and crew. Many of these changes were driven by safety. As aircraft flew faster and higher, the pressure placed on the pilots increased. Aircrew needed protection from the elements, high altitude and the effects of G. It features detailed studies of the kit in isolation and also showcases kit in the correct historical context, including authentic re-enactments with aircraft of the period. With over 120 images, this book aims to tell the story of RAF kit development using brand new images of original and authentic replica kit, as it would have been worn by RAF aircrew throughout history.
