Default Re: Whats this ?

Maybe the largest users of these things are glider pilots. They had to carry them to prove they'd flown for requited times and height gains to win awards, contests etc. So you may also find provision for fitting it with a wire and lead crimped security seal. They also take photos of landmarks to prove they've done required distances in cross country flights.

At 8000m you'd be far above where you'd have to be running an oxygen mask as well. Not an unreasonable full scale for the job

Otherwise something military grey in colour, labelled in German, and you can't quite see inside it, but you can start it ticking....
