Great War Air Force Bomber Pilot Uniform

OK, so ugly its COOL! Its dated 1916, was a unique set for higher altitude Imperial Russian aircraft pilots. It was then used by the very early Red Air force. Its helmet, tunic, pants, gloves, boots. It was on display in a large Russian air force museum.

My favorite part are the hand operated wipers on the goggles.

My dog would not stop barking at it!

I sure don't have one of those

Cool rig. Does look a bit like a Star War Jawa, though.
