    Soviet Aviator's Leather Flight Mask, dated 1941.

    Soviet Aviator's Leather Flight Mask, dated 1941.

    In soft leather with satin liner and elastic straps. On the inside is a sewn-in cloth label of the Leningrad Rotfront Fur Goods Factory with the "194.." date and the last digit "1" filled in in fountain pen. This is consistent with the quality of the mask: it was probably produced just before the German invasion in June 1941 (Leningrad came under siege in late August and was completely cut off about a week later).

    The mask is in excellent unissued condition; shows storage age only. The leather is good as new, beautifully soft and supple; the elastic straps are completely intact.

    The mask was designed not only for open cockpit airplanes such as U-2 (Po-2) night bombers and R-2 reconnaissance planes, but also for any WW2 era unheated airplane cockpit, especially when flying at high altitude or during Russian winter. A great piece of early aviation history, this mask will make an excellent addition to a WW2 Soviet pilot's kit and will display nicely either on a full mannequin or Styrofoam head.

    The price is for the face mask only; other items shown in our photo (pilot's helmet, goggles) are not included but may be available separately on our website.
