Joshua Jackson - One Week
This morning while on my daily walk three aircraft passed over following each other carefully, presumably en-route to a Remembrance Day ceremony flyover someplace. About 2000' and a quarter mile just north of where I was walking, so I got a great look at them. The first was the Lancaster from Canadian Warplane Heritage, the second a Cdn Forces C130, the third was most likely the Mitchell from Warplane Heritage. Link: https://www.warplane.com/aircraft/collection.aspx Only the C130 had visible exhaust trails. Lots of engine noise. It's kinda nice living where I do because we see the Lancaster go over two or three times each summer.
Look at the tiny hands trying to peak out. Like a baby sea turtle poking out of its shell for the first time, unsure and far from confident...and then the mad dash for safety in the sea.
My sentiment entirely.
Except turtles aren't scared of rain...
Bogart in Tokyo Joe... looks like an A-2 jacket with fur collar added!
Another view, note the pilot at the right. In the movie Bogart's character hires two ex-USAAF pilots to fly his air freight business. Both wear A-2 jackets in the film.
if you like dark blue nylon, watch this
I think everyone knows him!

Normally the jackets we see on celebrities are of mediocre quality or obviously overpriced one-season fashion items, but this jacket seems like a high quality one.
Well spotted, kowalski!! Here's more images from the same photo shoot.
Costner in a civilian-airline-pilot style jacket.
Something a bit more unusual...and timely. Four of the Iran Hostages, coming home after being released from captivity, in January of 1981. They’re wearing what appear to be newly issued, USAF N-3b jackets.
Thirty-eight years ago...but it seems like yesterday.
^ It does seem recent to those of us old enough. Here's a couple more photos.
