CHINESE FIGHTER PILOTS ANTI-G SUIT
Maker unknown
2010

Flight suits such as this one are designed to protect pilots from blacking out when they are subject to high levels of acceleration – g-force – when flying. This can cause the blood to pool in the lower part of the body and deprive the brain of oxygen. Air is pumped into the suit to pressurise the legs and abdomen.
