How extensive was the survival equipment USAAF provided to its airmen? This display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force looks beyond life rafts, Mae Wests, and flare guns.

That is really cool Fred. I really like the trading kit. Interesting that there was that much thought put into a pilot's survival inventory.

Thank you for sharing,
Randy
