In honor of Super Bowl 50, archivist Elizabeth Borja uncovered these images of Robert “Bob” Eucker sporting a football helmet while standing atop his Bell P-63A Kingcobra. Eucker had just won the Sohio Handicap Trophy Race in the 1948 National Air Races in Cleveland, Ohio. To celebrate his $3,150 win, Eucker borrowed a football helmet from his local high school and can be seen celebrating atop his airplane "Spirit of 'Tick'"
