Curtiss P-40: Men are from Mars (III).

Posing with his gloriously colourful early P-40 behind, this pursuit pilot is messing with the unmistakable A-8A oxyen mask. He is also wearing a B-6 winter flying helmet with those classic B-7 or AN 6530 goggles. Curious flying jacket, maybe privately purchased.
