Offered here is this USAF N-2A HEAVY ATTACHED HOOD FLYING JACKET. This example is the second model of the N-2 series. This jacket was made by C. MASLAND & SONS, under contract A. Adopted in the early 1950s, as the name on the label says, Flying-Jacket-Heavy Attached Hood, it has a large hood for the cold weather. When worn on the plane, this hood could be hung on the back, there is a zipper which effectively divides the hood, allowing the parachute harness to fit easily and the helmet to be worn without restricting movement. This heavy-zone flight jacket was mainly worn by the crew of bombers and reconnaissance planes, designed for the freezing temperatures of the Korean winter. The condition of this example is amazing considering its almost 70 years old, the blue shell is intact and no UV fading, which is very rare. The genuine wolf fur is mint, the knit cuffs and waistband look unworn with a couple tiny moth holes here and there, not even visible when in use. All zippers and snaps work and look perfect without any sign of rust, all buttons present and looking new. Dry cleaning is always suggested. This jacket has been stored for the last 60 years, so there is some dust, in any case it probably has never been worn. Left shoulder depicts a color printed U. AIR FORCE logo in great shape retaining its original colors. Jackets in this condition are extremely hard to find nowadays. This is your opportunity to own a genuine Korean War jacket in wearable condition. Pit to pit: 26. Please let me know any question. All sales are final. FOLLOW MY COLLECTION ON IG: TRADEAJACKET.
