1950/51 a Pulqui II jet pilot with some kind of early H-1 pattern helmet modified with earphones outside, or maybe an Argentine version of the early rigid helmets for jets in the late 40s, early 50s. What is clear is the pilot's A-14 oxygen mask, which may indicate where the helmet is from. The photo was taken in the second of 5 constructed prototype jets. The second prototype was in an accident in 1951 causing the death of the pilot, Captain Vedania Manuwal. Having existed only one experimental helmet of this type, it is possible that it was lost in the accident. In other photos taken in other prototypes, the test pilots like Capitan Edmundo Weiss wore the leather type "C" RAF.

In the photo Captain Edmundo Weiss is with the Pulqui II. It was before the inaugural flight of the Pulqui II in 1950. Weiss was the leader of the Test Pilot Squadron. Weiss appears to have a WWII era parachute and a RAF Type C leather flight helmet with Mk.8 style flying goggles and E or G type oxygen mask.
