    USAAF WW2 flight helmet & accessories

    Shown is an item in my collection, a flight helmet, AN-H-15, marked AAF. The goggles are marked AN 6530. The boom microphone is a MT-522 A/U.

    I know the USAAF B-17 aircrews used throat mics in WW2. Were the boom mics post-WW2? Using an oxygen mask would require a throat mic, but I am wondering if boom mics were used for low altitude missions in WW2?
