A faithful replica incorporating dark brown soft leather face mask stitched to the RAF blue painted solid brass frames. Fitted with traditional split lenses.
Halcyon Aviator Goggles are Made in England. The frames are manufactured in brass to prevent corrosion, have Louves to prevent misting, and are hand stitched to the face Mask. The lenses are available in polycarbonate and are easily replaceable. Nose bridge adjustment is provided with a screw or sliding nose bridge for the ideal fit. A quality elasticated headband with snap on clip is fitted with all models.
I have a pair of WWII flight goggles and have had them for over 55 years and always wanted a pair I could actually use. I was blown away I found them on-line and when I received them they were beyond my expectations! Thank you Aircraft Spruce for your great service, quick delivery and a superb product!!
Yes, these are Mark 8 goggles.

No, these are not designed to be worn over glasses.
We do not offer them with prescription lenses. We are not sure if an optometrist could do it.
These are manufactured in England.
The split lenses wrap around the side of your head a little more than a traditional lens. The idea is to improve peripheral vision.
