Nasa "Snoopy" Customized Hg-44/P Style Flight He
NASA "Snoopy" Customized HG-44/P Style Flight Helmet.
Possibly used in T-38 training. This bright blue PRK-37 helmet shell features a PRU-36/P side-actuated dual visor (clear/ tinted), and a Gentex MBU-12/P oxygen mask with an AM-7067/A mask microphone. On the top front is a NASA logo decal and on either side is a Snoopy decal with him sitting on his doghouse wearing a space helmet. On the back is a large and colorful Snoopy decal showing him in a spacesuit, helmet, and red scarf, carrying a life support system and doing a "happy dance." All around are stars and above is the text: "Eyes on the Stars". Near excellent condition with a few minor scratches.
After the tragic Apollo 1 fire, Snoopy became NASA's official mascot for flight safety. A number of AstroBeagle products were produced. Included with this lot is one such item- an original, late-1960s Snoopy Astronaut doll. He is wearing his helmet and spacesuit and carrying a "Flight Safety" case. Condition is only fair.
