Air Force Brigadier General’s flight grouping including his flight suit, flight jacket, garrison caps, and flight gloves. These items belonged to a Brigadier General Hutchinson of the Air Training Command. I have not done any research on him, so I have no specific information on him other than what is contained in this lot. Everything is in well worn, but good condition. Flight Suit: Size medium regular and dated 8 January 1968. It is very well worn with dark soiling of the lower legs. All zippers and snaps are present and functional. It has the embroidered white on olive drab Brigadier General stars on the shoulders, Air Training Command patch on the right breast, and HUTCHINSON stamped on the white cotton name tape on the left breast. When lying flat, it measures approximately 24 1/2″ from the top of the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve, approximately 18″ across the chest when measured from sleeve seam to sleeve seam at the bottom of the name tape, approximately 19 1/2″ across the waist when measured at the adjuster buttons, approximately 22 1/4″ from the collar seam the the waist seam when measured down the back, and the inseam measures approximately 29 1/2. Flight Jacket: There is no tag information in the jacket. It is in good, well worn condition with what is possibly mothing or pulling of the material in the waist and collar, leaving several small holes. The zipper and all snaps are present and functional. It has the embroidered white on olive drab cloth Brigadier General stars on the shoulders and Air Training Command patch on the right breast. When lying flat, it measures approximately 23 1/2″ from the top of the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve, approximately 17″ across the chest when measured from sleeve seam to sleeve seam at the top of the Air Training Command patch, and approximately 24 from the collar seam to the bottom of the jacket when measured down the back. 2 Air Force Blue silver piped officer garrison caps with silver Brigadier General stars. One is a Flight Ace size 7 1/8 and the stamping inside is hard to read, but the USAF Certification No. Appears to date 1969. The other cap has not tags or markings inside, but looks to be the same size. Both are in well worn condition with the unmarked one showing soiling from wear. USAF summer flying gloves that are a size 8 and dated 1972. They are in good, well used condition with normal signs of wear. I don’t have a good spot to properly display this grouping, so I would love to pass it on to someone does. I f you have any questions, please send me a message.
