Article about: Rene Unfortunate about the certificate. Examples such as this have taught me to purchase the item and never the "fluff" that comes with it. For what it's worth, you have an iconic

    Default USAAF B3 Flight Jacket x2

    G'Day All

    Here's my two, not in the best nick. Aero Leather NY
    Due to the leather treatments of B3 and related trousers etc.. these are extremely rare to be in mint condition.
    Both are local flea market finds many years ago

    Hi, Rene

    Very nice flight jacket! Am I correct in thinking that there are bibs/pants in leather that go with this jacket? I recently saw a pair and didn't think of having it. My mistake! I will have to look to see if it's still there If I can obtain it, I'll post it and if you like it.....maybe we can arrange to have them reunite!?

    Would be nice as I have been ripped off by Manions selling me a rotten set A5 with a photocopy claim it was from "12 O'clock High"----- Never again I will deal with them

    I put gaffer tape and sewed problems but it's too far gone

    Do you mean this is not a good jacket? Please forgive my ignorance, as I don't know anything about these flight suits. What is the difference between "12 o'clock high" and A5? I think I remember reading "type b4" on the pants I mentioned. I will go look at them tomorrow and grab a few photos.

    Ahh "12 o'clock high" is a late 40's movie starring Gregory Peck A3 and A5 sets are the mate for a B3
    I'm not sure a B4 other than a clothing suit case existed but I could be wrong

    LOL I'll be laughing about not knowing that 12 o'clock high is a movie. At my age, (4 decades young) I would expect to know that.

    I will check, tomorrow, on the pants.

    So you thought the jacket was from the movie? But it is authentic WW2? Sorry to hear about your dilemma, but not a loss.
