During a visit at my parents home, my father told me he had found an old green flight jacket amongst my old things that I left back at my parents home when I moved to Vienna.
It turned out it's an old (from around 1994) Alpha B-15 nylon flight jacket in sage green.
It still fits but I am unsure if I want to keep it.
If someone is interested,.please lete know, we can surely work out a deal...pictures to follow if there is interest...

If this is the Alpha that I think of, then this is not bad repro (closer to D-version), there should be Scovill zippers.
In any case, it will be interesting to look at the photos.

Thank you, I thought you has an earlier version of them.
With the Ideal zips not interested, I saw such jackets here. Not qute correct shade of green compared to the original and a number of simplifications in the cut.
In any case, good luck with the sale.

Ah no problem....I did not even know that I still have this jacket so I thought I'd post about it here and see if there is someone interested in it...

what's wrong with Ideal zip? I have an original M-65 with Ideal zip.
