Leonard "Wolfman" Wolfe's (Barry Tubb) fighter pilot helmet from Tony Scott's action drama Top Gun. Wolfman wore his helmet while attending Top Gun and participating in several combat missions as Rick "Hollywood" Neven's (Whip Hubley) Radar Intercept Officer.
This helmet is constructed of resin painted red and affixed with five yellow, blue, white, and silvertone star insignia stickers. It features a stencil residue reading "WOLFMAN ," a tinted plastic visor, black leatherette padding, a Velcro chin strap, an incomplete breathing cable affixed on the left side, and two metal tags labelled "Flight Suits, LTD. El Cajon, California." Handwritten inside the helmet are the words "Top Gun", "Sun Down" (crossed out), and "Merlin #2", implying that the helmet was intended to be Sun Down's (Clarence Gilyard Jr.) or Merlin's (Tim Robbin's) at one point. The helmet is in good overall condition with various signs of wear, including cracking to the padding, tears to the stickers, and damaged paint throughout.
