USAAF Type B-10 Flight Jacket


Our new Aero Type B-10 is lined in extremely warm and luxurious genuine  Alpaca Wool impored from Peru and woven to match the original specification. It has a genuine Mouton Fur collar, the waistband and cuffs are, of course, 100% virgin wool. Our current jacket is fitted with a genuine vintage rectangular Taon Alloy zipper with the option of a replica triple marked Talon Art Deco zipper, both correct for the original Type B-10 contacts while the label is perfect reproduction of the Aero Test Laboratory label used to identify new designs in test during WW2

The B-10 was the first of the USAAF Cloth flight jackets. It was introduced in 1943 to replace the Type A2 when Hap Arnold decided that leather was a "luxury" flight crews could do without.

The B-10 was a military jacket that was also very popular as an easy to wear civilian jacket. It continues to influence civilian work and casual jackets today
