Here’s an original Aero 42-15142P that I recently acquired from another forum member . I have included the data plate information from Gary Eastmans book “Type A2 Flight Jacket Identification Manual” The date of this contract was March 28, 1942. for 50,000 jackets at $8.25 per jacket. The total cost of the contract was $412,500.00 and was the 6th of 7 contracts granted to Aero Leather. The leather used was cowhide and not horsehide as previously thought. The jacket did not have a collar stand. The knits on this jacket have been replaced at some point. I hope you guys enjoy the posting. Fit pictures to follow.
