Luftwaffe Grey Leather Flying Jacket
This example is in excellent issued condition. Zip closure to front as well as on chest pocket and arm and all in good working order. NATO woven AWAC badge to front and German flags on both shoulders. There is evidence of pilot's wings and other badges which have been removed. The jacket is fitted with a bright orange lining and was designed to be reversible as an aid to rescue in an emergency. The lining is marked with a large letter A. The knitted waist band, cuffs and collar show signs of wear, but are in generally good condition. An original label is fitted indicating GR14 186-100 and the manufacturing date of 11/89. This jacket is a generous size and has a further label indicating 14, but we would estimate it would comfortably fit up to a 44" chest (112cm). I own one of these jackets myself and can pass on my personal recommendation!
