    No Pammy, it's just an A-2 copy for fashionable retail. The interior lining of a map reminds me of near identical jackets for sale in Turkey I saw a few years back.

    I agree Pammy, unfortunately its the type thats sold on some clothing markets in my local area, some even have the flying tigers emblem on the rear, they look good but no cigar im afraid

    Hi, Pammy.

    This one is probably made in Korea. Quite stylish and comfortable
    though. I had one just like it 12 years ago............!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hi Pammy as they all have said modern copy. And as Dave said they did a flying tiger jacket I still have mine from1987 and it looks like it went through the war now. Gary
