Photos: Air Force Unveils New Air Power Legacy Series Helmet

The new helmets have a special meaning behind them.

Air Force is doing something cool this year. The program will be wearing five different Air Power Legacy Series helmets honoring the F-35 military plane.

The first helmet was unveiled today, and it is pretty awesome.

Check out the video and photos below.

Here are some more details from the Colorado Springs Gazette:

The football helmet – released in photos on Monday – is modeled after the helmet F-35 pilots wear in flight. There will be five designs for the helmet this year. On one side, the Air Force logo will be a constant. On the other, there will be five decals representing the five F-35A operational fighter squadrons.

The full uniform will be revealed later and other four decals will be revealed at a later date.

The service academies have rolled out some cool alternate helmets and uniforms in recent years.
