LT 'RUDY' McCAIN's Flight Gear Collection

Thanks for stopping by the "Collections Site". I created this section in an effort to help the Widows/Families of our American Heroes find a place for some of the mementos and collectibles they are willing to part with. This (I hope) helps the families in an effort to go through all the memorabilia we aviators tend to collect while we're in......the items are NOT NEW, therefore you will see some "wear" on items, as they were obtained over the years. Enjoy, and know that you are helping these families.......

These are on a "first-come, first-gets" basis. If you want one, please email (only) me (whiteyinga@av8rstuff.com) so that I can keep everything in chronological order. When listing what you want, use the title listed, as that's what I know it by. If you need a "closeup" or a picture of the back of the item, let me know and I will send via text/email. Remember, most of these are in a "used" condition, many worn in COMBAT, and are guaranteed for authenticity by the family. (In this case, I know Skipper Hagan personally and can vouch on each item's accuracy as described)!

Since every item is a "ONE-ONLY" quantity, no "cart" or "checkout" feature is being offered. These are being done either by PAYPAL, Check, or Credit Card. Email me to verify the ones you "won", the total cost, and I will give you the details of your order.

These come in the condition you see. You'll see some of these patches that are on the website, but THESE ARE ALL ORIGINAL pieces purchased AT THE TIME they were made, unless otherwise specified. ASSUME AUTHENTIC ORIGINALS and (if needed) will differentiate when it isn't). Please ask all questions before finalizing, as I couldn't bear to ask for a refund from the family members.....thanks again to the greatest group of enthusiasts on the web..........you all are awesome and make me proud to know you!!

A-6E Intruder Torso Harness A-6E Intruder Torso Harness
Price: $299.99

Flewn in Combat operations in Mediterranean and Middle East, this is the torso harness for LT McCain (distant relative to the late Senator) when he was a Bomb/Nav in the A-6E Intruder with VA-75 Sunday Punchers off the USS Enterprise in 1996. He's approx 5" 10" tall, so this is probably a Med/Reg size. With all the missions he flew, the wearing of it has worn the label almost unreadable. Email for more details, pics, or if you have questions. More pics below showing pictures of (very rare) authentic and original USN official flight gear from a former USN LT that flew in the venerable A-6E Intruder with VA-75 Sunday Punchers off the flight deck of the USS ENTERPRISE on their our 1996 Summer Med Cruise. His last name is McCain and is a (very) distant relative of the (late) Senator and Vietnam hero. This post is offering LT McCain's ejection-seat- equipped TORSO HARNESS. It has sat in his A-3 Gear bag for 20+ years, so it's in a wee bit of TLC. Posing with this is my wife (quit checking out her butt!), and as you can see, it was worn by the LT who was about 5'10" (give or take). He would like to offer this harness for $449 (or best offer, as his price is negotiable). Any questions, please ask, as it comes in the condition you see. It was worn in combat during Operations SOUTHERN WATCH and BOSNIA
