NAA famous test pilot Scott Crossfield in his office. Crossfield is wearing the lovely silver covered David Clark MC-2 full-pressure suit. That suit employed the charismatic helmet built by the Bill Jack Company, here without the inner face mask seen during Crossfield’s X-15 test flights.

  3. Years ago I used to know a guy who worked for David Clark. He flew himself into Oshkosh and Reno every year to sell David Clark headsets. Great job I thought!
