Fighter pilot helmets hang on locker pegs at the 40th Flight Test Squadron’s equipment room on Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., Feb. 9. The helmets are stored on pegs to air them out after flights. Helmets are carried in helmet bags to and from the equipment storage room from the aircraft to protect them. The maintenance of the helmets is critical to the pilot’s safety, communication capabilities and oxygen supply. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Ilka Cole)
