MA-1 MA1 USAF Leather version Intermediate flight jacket Mil-J-8279 PX item 80's 37" chest Made in USA

USED condition

DESCRIPTION :

This is an one ( 1 ) pc AUTHENTIC 80's PX item, optional to Air force aviator US AIR FOCE MA-1 Intermediate Leather Flight jacket             

 

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.

 

The MA-1 has undergone various design modifications during its long history of use, but its classic, highly functional design has remained basically the same. The original design was contained in U.S. Government Military Specification "MIL-J-8279." Changes to the MA-1 jacket were periodically made by the Air Force. These occurred because of the introduction of new textiles, new sewing techniques or new aircraft cockpit design which required a change in the jacket design. The Military Specification was amended to reflect the changes, which was signaled by adding a letter to the Mil. Spec. For example, MA-1 specifications progressed from the original number Mil-J-8279, to J-8279A, J-8279B, J-8279C, etc. The most recent revision, J-8279F, was issued in the early 1980s.     This is ultra rare item. 

this is very collectable Vietnam war gear item nowaday.
