Further to our update of 9th of June, the refurbishment of the two ex-74 Sqn flight helmets is now complete. Paul West (BPAG volunteer and ex-74 Sqn Air Radar) and fellow ex-Tiger Richard Proctor sourced these two examples from unused old stock. They have been carefully restored with genuine components and are now mounted, ready for display alongside ZE360 when the time comes.
Each one is complete with mask, bag and nametag paying tribute to Flight Lieutenant Ewan Murdoch and Flying Officer Jeremy Ogg, who were both tragically lost in an accident involving ZE358 during a low level interception training sortie near Aberystwyth, West Wales on 25th August 1987.
Many thanks to Paul and Richard for their generosity and hard work in preparing this tribute.
