Bob Scott also attended the 1956 Nats, although his helmet wasn’t quite as elaborate as Johnny Schneider’s.
Bob seemed to be a bit more concerned about what would happen if he lost his hat. A lost aircraft sticker is on each side of the helmet. Hopefully there were enough spare stickers that one actually wound up on his model!
