About

Nicknamed the Flying Tigers, the AVG (American Volunteers Group) was deployed to aid the Chinese Air Force and help defend China against Japan in the 1940s. The Flying Tigers comprised of U.S. Army Air Force, U.S Navy and U.S Marine Corp pilots recruited by President Roosevelt.

The B-10 flight jacket was the first non-leather jacket issued to the USAAF. It proved popular amongst pilots due to the comfort of the alpaca lining and mouton fur collar.  This reproduction of the Type B-10 is finished with souvenir Flying Tigers iconography throughout. Including Bullion Patches (Threaded Steel) on 100% wool felt backings and leather crafted patch on the breast and blood chit scroll inside the jacket which is finished in the same hand painted style as the originals.
