    Hello
    First time on this site.
    I’m trying to put a date to a US leather MA-2 jacket and was wondering if someone could help out.
    Dark brown leather MA-2 and the label reads as follows:
    TYPE A-2
    JACKET, FLYER’S LEATHER
    NSN NO.8415
    DLA 100-87-R-0615
    PROPERTY
    U.S. ARMY AIR FORCE
    PROTECH, INC, PLYMOUTH, MA
    All yellow text on a black label, sewn into rusty-brown lining.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks
    Will

    • This is a fairly modern repro I think dating from the last twenty years, I dont think its a USAF issue jacket, sorry.

      All the best
