    Here we can see two Allied aviators with different flight googles, but both with solar lens.

    I'm wondering how common those solar lens goggle models were, because at least popularily we have the impression that the googles were in the majority with neutral lens.

    Interesting. That could be a vital piece of equipment if the enemy attacks you coming from the sun.
