    Hello Andrew;

    You must have the most premier flying jacket collection on the planet.

    Just fantastic. I always appreciate your pictures.

    Regards,
    coffee

    Nice collection Andrew, I reckon If I had that many I would be wearing them all the time. Do you wear them outside? War & Peace show etc?
    Hope to leave mine to my son when I'm 6 feet under. I just hope he has some interest in it, he's into what most young kids are at the moment, cars, beer, and girls!

    Thanks chaps. I wear them to air shows and to other events, but not on a daily basis.

    Got any old pics of jackets you no longer own? I love looking at them too. I have never had more than 4 originals, and never photographed them all, when I find the few pics I have I will post them on here.
    Had lots of sheepskins and a B15, a few G1s and a couple wartime versions M422A I think it was.
    Cheers, John

    Most of my pics are in this section of the FL. I also collect Irvins and B-3s. The closed Irvin thread contains many pics of my Irvins and the current open original Irvin thread has the later ones.

    Thanks, I'm sure I will spend many happy hours looking for them. I have also had a few Irvins and B3s plus an M445A that was my fave sheep jacket.

    Your Roughwear 27752 in seal brown is my favorite. Feel like I made the right decision ordering the Roughwear from GW.

    aswatland,

    Do you know anything about the patch on the no-name Doniger? I've seen that patch before in pics of my grandfather durin WWII. It's in a picture of him at flight school and I'd love to be able to identify it. Thanks for posting amazing pics of a truly superb collection.

    It's an ATC patch-Air Transport Command, rather than a specific unit patch.
