Gemini G-2C Pressure Suit “Kanowski”
« on: January 10, 2019, 12:16:18 pm »
Does anyone know where Kanowski’s Gemini G-2C-4 pressure suit ended up after being sold at the recent auction?  I would like to contact the new owner and share the research I have done related his suit and the other (4) high altitude test jumpers, including my Father, CWO Charles O. Laine.  This work was done in the early 1960’s at the 6511th test parachute facility in El Centro California.  I have many photos I would like to share with the new owner.  Please advise.  Thanks!
