A-2 Leather Flight Jacket



The escape map detail dates back to the engagement of the Air Force in the European theatre of operations. The jacket was worn by pilots in the 8th, 9th, 12th and 15th divisions flying B-17 and B-24 bombers as well P-38, P-47 and P-51 Fighters. The escape map of Europe was originally hand sewn into the lining by the pilot in the event that his plane was shot down behind enemy lines thus allowing the downed pilot to navigate his way back to the safety of the allied troops.
