Several weeks ago I found a large lighted display case on my local Craigslist. When I went to buy it, the seller asked if I would have any interest in a piece owned by his Father-In-Law? I looked at it and tried to come across as Yeah, I might be interested, how much would it cost? He told me he'd have to check and would get back to me.
After a week of waiting, I got an e-mail, was given a price and without hesitation said YES!! I picked it up a few days later. Below are photos of my "New" 1943 dated, all complete, AN 6511-1 Seat Type Parachute made by Irving Air Chute Co.
