F-1 electrically-heated suit

Plans call for this artifact to be displayed near the B-17F Memphis Belle™ as part of the new strategic bombardment exhibit in the WWII Gallery, which opens to the public on May 17, 2018. F-1 “Blue Bunny” electrically-heated suit. The first type used by bomber crews, its internal wires often broke in use, shocking the wearer.
