I just spotted this, apparently called 'Ambush' and coming out later this year... or next?
That’s a scene from the 2019 movie “Midway”. It’s actor Aaron Eckhart portraying Jimmy Doolittle in the movie.
This man earned his...
Uh..actually Stewart was issued the A2 and added the patch of his unit. He did earn his rank. Or at least that was the way it was when I was in the military.
He was also a Liberator pilot if what I read is correct and retired a BG.
Well, again, he was trained to be a pilot and by learning to fly earned his wings and also his Brigadier General rank but his uniform and jacket were issued by supply.
Right, but you didn't get a jacket unless you were aircrew or a high ranking officer. That's my point. He was a pilot. No-rank low-rank airmen didn't just walk over to supply and say "Yeah, and gimme one of those A2 jackets too...!"
Ah. that's true, I also wondered why he was wearing the Doolittle jacket for a Vietnam movie.
Well during WW2 it was the Army Air Force and they picked up their issued jackets in supply through the Quarter Master.
USAAF Lieutenant Jacob Beser (1921-1992) wearing his B-10 flight jacket, standing in front of the Enola Gay, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber that was used to drop the “Little Boy” atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.
Beser served as the radar specialist on the Enola Gay, monitoring the sensors for the bomb and making sure it didn’t detonate prematurely. Three days after the bombing of Hiroshima, Beser performed the same task in a second B-29 Superfortress bomber, Bockscar, in the bombing of Nagasaki with the atomic bomb “Fat Man”. Beser was the only crew member to accompany both atomic bomb missions.
