    Yeppers...that will be pretty cool. What specific Olongapo band did you go with? Also, do they have “Nasal Radiator” specific Olongapo bands? Asking for a friend. :D

    They are each made to order with the hand made insignias you choose and band sized to your wrist. I went with a Clark Air Base/Pacific Air Forces insignia on one side and 13th Air Force (at Clark at that time) shown below. The vast majority of vintage Olongapo bands I have seen are anchor clanker insignias. I'm sure a naviator band could be made, but I doubt the maker, Jaffy Jurado, would bother with any kind of whirly bird insignia.

    Maybe he could fashion this insignia.

    By the way. It takes a secure man to wear that helmet. I always just wore one of the old Campy caps with the bill flipped up. I actually dragged the two cyclocross bikes out and cleaned and lubed them...smooth as glass.

    Very grateful to get out of the house for awhile for a solo hike. Sanity restored for a few days at least.
