Hello,

As promised, I took some time to make a picture of my original A-2 jackets.
There are 19 jackets there but of course I've forgotten one, the last one I've bought and was stored in another place.
So the right answer is 20 A-2s !

The 19 jackets :


And the last one (a beautiful Poughkeepsie size 46, 445th bomb group)

Yes, it is stored safely under my bed, waiting for the temperature to drop... The B-3, the Mash NAF and the G1 are actually the only jackets from 2008 that I still have...
I’ll be sure to keep my eye out for that one ,I imagine it’s ageing rather well

"If i'd die and my wife would sell the stuff i HOARDED for the Price i told her i payed for it ..." :)

Jeeesh! either i started collecting too late or i did not make enuff of those small green bills with Will McKinley's face on it to be able to afford ... :D:D:D

This was said by one of my friends ...
Everyone has different financial capabilities and aspirations ... Also I think not everyone here is a collector. Just lovers of flight and historical jackets or interested ... Me personally get rid of jackets that I don't wear. But everyone has their own touch and this is probably normal. Again ... life (in this world) not perpetual, so everyone has fun as he can and as he likes :D

that was pure irony from me - i already spent that much Money for even more "irrational" things i would be able to buy the "Eiffel Tower" in Paris (again irony) ...

like your Image says: enjoy life as Long as you can - whoever knows what happens tomorrow

therefore "thumbs up" and "respect" for the serious guys here on this forum no matter whether they own 2 or 20 or even 200 jackets
