MA1 Flight Bomber Army Us Pilot Airforce Jacket Description

MA1 FLIGHT BOMBER ARMY COMBAT MILITARY US PILOT SKIN MOD BIKERS AIRFORCE JACKET

 

 

 

BRAND NEW COOL SKINHEAD US STYLE MA1 BOMBER FLIGHT COMBAT ARMY JACKET

 

 

 

HIGH QUALITY - FULLY PADDED

 

 

 

Prior to the invention of jet aircraft, fleece-lined leather jackets were issued to flight personnel. However, the new jets could fly at much higher altitudes and in much colder temperatures than propeller aircraft. If the heavy, bulky leather jackets became wet from rain (when the pilot walked to his aircraft) or from perspiration, the water would freeze at high altitudes, making the jackets cold and uncomfortable. Also, the new jets were more streamlined in design. Cockpits were cramped and filled with new equipment. Speedy, unimpeded access to and exit from cockpits became even more critical for safety. Rather than bulky leather, a sleek, lightweight yet warm jacket was needed for the new jet technology.

 

 

 

To meet these needs, a new type of flight jacket was developed from the existing B-15 jacket, which was initially produced in cotton, but later produced in the same pattern but in high quality nylon. The B-15 had a wool collar with pile (a little like fur) carried over from the earlier B-10 that was found to interfere with straps in practice. Nylon had been discovered prior to World War II but it was not used in flight clothing until after the war, possibly because the demand for nylon for items such as parachutes consumed the available supply during the war.

 

 

 

The first MA-1 jackets were issued around 1949 or 1950 to United States Air Force and Navy pilots and flight crews. Small numbers were also issued to Army flight personnel. MA-1 jackets first appeared in Europe in very small quantities in the mid-to-late 1950s probably on the black market and at sales of government surplus.

Warm

Nicely made and warm! The zipper sticks a little which can be annoying, not a major drawback. All in all good value for money.
