This video supplements The Fighter Pilot Podcast episode 3 (http://fighterpilotpodcast.com/10/003-flight-clothing-and-equipment/). Our thanks to US Navy Lieutenant Commander Aaron "Vern" Vernallis for taking the time to show us the F/A-18 flight clothing and equipment discussed in the interview. Clearly the lighting, sound, even acting are not Oscar-worthy, but--hey--now you know what the flight gear looks like!
Rotorcraft Pro Media Network was on location at the 2013 Air Medical Transport Conference in Virginia Beach, USA when Nomex was performing burn tests on flight apparel. www.rotorcraftpro.com
