Hi All;

Here is an "interesting" website focussed on Japanese radio equipment with a lot of nice little surprises throughout.

Most of it is in Japanese, however there is some english titles added...have a look, some neat stuff there...

Interesting High Altitude gear...Can you say Astronaut? (http://www.yokohamaradiomuseum.com/tenjitop.html)

An interesting, well laid out, and comprehensive site. I liked the pictures of flying suits and parachutes.
Those high-altitude helmets remind me of one of those 1960's TV science fiction series (Fireball XL5, Bleep and Booster, Lost in Space?):
