Notes:

This pilot’s oxygen mask contains a microphone to transmit speech to the aircraft's radio and to other crew members if required. Military aviators' oxygen masks have face pieces that partially cover the sides of the face and protect the face against flash burns, flying particles, and effects of a high speed air stream hitting the face during emergency evacuation from the aircraft by ejection seat or parachute. They are often part of a pressure suit or, in this example, for use with a flight helmet. This Oxygen Mask has helmet headset cables and connectors and attachment wire ends compatible with C1139.
