The American Volunteer Group (AVG), or “Flying Tigers” as they became known as, were volunteer pilots from all branches of the US military who fought for China as “civilians.” The group was formed prior to America’s involvement in WWII and were brilliantly led by Claire Chennault (who was eventually promoted to the rank of General and commander of the 14th AF). The exploits & successes of the Flying Tigers, usually against superior numbers, became legendary.
This outstanding A-2 is a tribute to the this elite group of aviators. Features include a supple medium brown goatskin shell, snap-down collar with collar stand (a feature found on earlier A-2s), box-stitched epaulets, two front cargo pockets (with authentic WWII-era pocket flaps), two interior pockets, nickel throat latch, brass zipper under wind flap, one-piece back, 100% cotton lining (with fully embroidered American Volunteer Group “banner” sewn onto the lining), and a WWII-style leather hanging strap (box-stitched on the back). The front of the jacket features a multi-piece leather Hell’s Angel (3rd Pursuit Squadron) patch, the left sleeve features a 14th AF bullion patch, and the back of the jacket features a leather “blood chit” with multi-piece US flag and China-Burma-India insignia. A truly authentic jacket! Made in the USA.
Note: this jacket is made to vintage military sizing specs, so the fit is snug. For an authentic fit, order your regular size; for a more “normal” & comfortable fit, order one size larger.
