Aero USAAF Type B-10 Flight Jacket
Aero's new Type B-10 is lined in extremely warm and luxurious genuine alpaca wool imported from Peru and woven to match the original specification. It has a genuine mouton fur collar and the waistband and cuffs are 100% virgin wool. The current jacket is fitted with a genuine vintage rectangular Talon Alloy zipper with the option of a replica triple marked Talon Art Deco zipper, both correct for the original Type B-10 contacts. The label is a 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, but 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.
