I am a new collector of gear, although I have dreamed of owning
it since early childhood. I don't know why I cant get enough, as I suspect the other
members of this elite collectors society may think like I do. Otherwise why would we
collect it at all...
I am locate din big Pine Key, FL about 30 mi from Key west. The pictures with the LET-39C
came from when I was driving by the airport, and spotted the jet on the runway. I couldn't
believe my eyes. I got on the phone immediately and called the airport and asked if I may
come and take pictures of the jet. They were happy to let me.
But what really BLEW
their minds was the gear I wore to take the pictures. I wore the complete GSH6 helmet and
Bkk partial pressure suit. The folks who owned the aircraft are in business, and do sell
"air time" for approx $800.00 for a ride in it. They had no idea I was going
to show up ready to take off in their jet. I still can't believe I had the nerve to
suit up of this, but after looking at the photos am glad I did!! Sorry I am not the pilot
of this exciting aircraft, but will co pilot it sometime when I get the funds to do
