Grumman F9F-2 Panther: “Where do we get such men?”.

The Bridges of Toko Ri is one of the best “aircrafts movie” ever, period. Its main attributes: Michener’s superb story; the acting; the glorious Technicolor; the action and, of course, “the hardware”. I’m specially fond of Willian Holden’s headgear. He seems to be wearing a lovely personalized H-3 helmet conveniently equipped with a M-6A/UR microphone -a plus, you can see the actor’s face- and those neatly designed U.S.N goggles (customised Polaroid B-8). The oxy mask is a gorgeous MS22001 (A-13A).
