From time to time there has been discussion on what type of seat harness the RAF used in their Allison engined P-51. Speculations has two major candidates: The British Sutton-type or the US type and I wavered between the two. Just found this picture while reading a book on Danish participation in Allied Forces during WW2 This is Vera Elise Strodl, a ATA pilot with a Danish mother. Nice smile, but look what she has in her right hand. I'm not in doubt any longer. Now did anyone mention the same discussion of the type of handle fitted on the control stick? RAF spade or pistol grip? Show me your proof. Best regards Finn
Evening all I'm building the Eduard 1/48 P-47D as a 73 OTU machine and was wondering if they would have retained their American type seat harness's or would they have been retro fitted with Sutton type belts? Yours aye Iain
