Hi Richard and all I was a Survival Equipment Fitter from 1969 to 78 and I believe the seat harness were the light brown in colour similar to that used on the Lincolns, in about 1964 when I was a cadet I remember them also on helicopters, later the harness were medium blue webbing, and starting in the mid seventies started to appear using Black webbing.

On the 17th Dec 2008 a C17 landed at Cosford inside it was a Ch53 for the Cold War Museum, the runway at Cosford is about the same length as the airport in the states but has a railway enbankment at one end and landed towards it.
