Robert Vance, a 461st OSS Aircrew Flight Equipment officer, discuss the benefits of their hybrid mask they created using elements from the M50 ground crew mask and the MBU-13/P mask at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, Oct. 13, to prevent communication interruptions between a pilot and his team. The pair came up with this innovation solution after they experienced communications breakdowns during a recent exercise utilizing their chemical gear. (courtesy photo)
