A2 Flight Military Spec Jacket S/M
This is a brown Type A2 Flight Jacket made by Wild Blue Yonder, California c 1990. The Wild Blue Yonder Aviation Store made flight suits for the US Airforce and supplied plane parts. In the shop they made jackets like this one to order and original specifications. This is as near to an original as possible with Military Spec. and has a Scovill Gripper zipper with tag. It has a 9th Airforce hand painted leather patch on the left shoulder and Captain's bands fitted on the shoulders. It has handwarming pockets on the front, which of course also shows this is a copy as the originals would not have had these. The cuffs are in fair to good condition with no major damage, just some bobbling as would be expected. It has a nylon lining and provision for a velcro badge on the left-hand breast. This jacket is goatskin, as are the originals, but it does not bear any label stating this. However any good history on Wild Blue Yonder will agree all their jackets were goatskin. This jacket is an American import and a lovely example of a good copy. Please make sure you measure to ensure this great jacket fits you as it would be a shame for it to arrive and not!
