B-1B Test Team Blue “MA-1” Named

Recently purchased this jacket as it seemed too neat to pass up. The label is completely washed out, but it is most likely a commercial Alpha Industries jacket. I was able to track down the original owner who was a “an inspector on the B-1B” from testing through production.

just wanted to share!

Excellent find good history as well how's the fit

Unfortunately, it is a bit too small for me to wear (it comes up rather high on the waist -- more than the usual crop of a flight jacket) but I think it will stay in the collection for the time being, or I may sell it.
