    Wow, It might need its liner washed though after all this time, ...before he tries it on.

    What a cool story. I always think about tracking down family members of the crew who flew aboard the aircraft I have relics of. I have never yet done it because I wouldn't want to cause upset to a family who "may" not have wanted to be contacted about such a thing, let alone receive a piece (given that it could still be a wife at this present time). I guess in this case though it was a no brainer.
