Submission Pilot blinded at 1000 mph by helmet technical glitch ..->

codeusirae writes: RAF pilots were left “blinded” by a barrage of images while flying at speeds of over 1,000 mph when a number of technical glitches hit their high-tech helmets.

The visors were supposed to provide the fighter pilots with complete vision and awareness, but problems with the display produced a blurring known as “green-glow”, meaning they were unable to see clearly.

The green glow occurred when a mass of information was displayed on the helmet-mounted display systems, including radar pictures and images from cameras mounted around the aircraft.
