I haven't kept up with any callsigns for the 2009 team, so if anyone wants to fill in the blanks, go ahead!
Here's a pic of No. 2's helmet if anyone can make it out:

Thanks Tailhook!
Did you get those at the Hamptons, Dover and/or Andrews?

Looking at that picture I noticed something wasn't right. Took me a few seconds, but he must be being towed and not actually taxing hence his O2 mask is off, com cord unplugged, risers and harness not secured... kind of a weird shot if you think about it.

Design is all about finding solutions within constraints.
How about the seat and HUD covers stuffed away behind him too...
