TYPE G3a Suit ; Pneumatic ,Anti G
« on: December 03, 2016, 10:12:20 AM »
I have been quite fortunate to have acquired this pair of "speed jeans" . Thes are actually from an estate of a Col who was in the USAAF then the USAF

The bag unfortunately is not the correct one for the manufacturer of the suit , but it is still a period piece , and will keep them safe until the day i find the correct one .

You are without doubt on a major roll Carl! I've never seen those "speed jeans" in the hands of a collector...very scarce indeed.  (BTW...I failed to open all of the images. Me...or the system!?)

I don't visit for a while and Carl grabs all the USAAF stuff!  I saw your A-11 gloves (drooling) and your recent A6 boots along with this.  I thought I was catching up but no!

To say I'm jealous is an understatement  :)
