Early WWII US Army Air Corps Flight Gear

Thought that I would open up another North African Campaign related topic on U.S. Army Air Corps flight equipment. The first I would like to present is an A-4 flight coverall. As most flying was done in support of ground forces at low altitude, very little in the way of leather flight wear was needed. The following type of gear would be of great use! big_smile    Barron
