• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

To support nylons theme. My original MA-1 Skyline today, this old nice lady of 58 years old and in great shape, I'm very love this comfy piece of the early jet era.







I am waiting for another Skyline MA-1, she is on way to me and if believe to my american friend who found she, once upon she belonged to great Chuck. Can't wait to see.

NOOOOOOOOO! :p If this is true Dmitry, you will be one very lucky and envied man! Looking forward to your receiving it.
Hi Brett, I don't know whether this is true his or not. In any case, I like this jacket already in absentia.I don’t know for sure, I just know that this is original MA-1 with an early patch of Edwards AFB and with white tape with his last name. I suspect that he had a lot of jackets, why should the one I bought not be one of his many? Who knows... It is unlikely that will be able to be 100% sure...Maybe someone did it on purpose, but I didn’t pay for it at the plane's price. Nowadays it’s hard to believe people. But also I realized that such things have a great value for a very small circle of people.. For those who are interested and for whom it is really valuable. For the overwhelming majority, this just green nylon jacket does not look any different from the mall nylon green jackets. And most likely it even looks worse for them - because it has signs of wear and is not new.
Today, even among many pilots, most do not remember the name of this guy. Many years working in aviation, I often come across the fact that most guys are interested just they current work - flights, retrains, procedures, observance of CRM, etc. and although many of us are still romantics - not everyone is interested in aviation history. So...
