Description


You are bidding on a NICE used example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe LKpS101 Fliegerkopfhaube fur Sommer mit FT-Gerat (Summer Flight Helmet with Communication Equipment), Fl. 26617, as used by many German pilots throughout the early stages of WW2. 

 

During WW1, most pilots quickly realized the need for protective headgear due to the cold weather effects while in an open cockpit.  As no headgear was readily available, pilots were forced to utilize commercially produced leather motorcycle and automobile helmets.  During WW2, the German military produced approx. 10 variations of flight helmets for various operational conditions, as well as with or without radio communication equipment.  This specific helmet was designed with radio equipment for fighter and bomber pilots.

 

 Made of cotton and fleece, this helmet is VERY GOOD used condition.  There are no rips or tears, and the fabric is still very soft and supple.  All snaps, tabs, and buckles work correctly, and there is only slight corrosion on the steel fittings.  All straps are fully adjustable, and the data label is still intact indicating, “LKpS101, Fl. 26617”.  Size is marked as a 54, and it is dated 1942.  As it is in used condition there is a bit of wear and marks.  The leather covers for the earphones are also still fully intact!  Cord is still present, however it is cracked in a few places, as you can see in the photos.  Sadly, the snaps on the throat mic are missing…but those could be easily replaced.  Would make a FANTASTIC and VERY RARE addition to any collection or display!!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
