Artwork Features and History:
Our featured jacket is a tribute to the crew of the B-17G Flying Fortress “Heaven Sent” and was custom hand-painted by our resident artist Jim Harley on our 50 Mission™ Sheepskin A-2 Jacket. The plane and its crew was part of the 100th Bomb Group that was stationed out of Thorpe Abbotts airfield in England during WWII (the background photo is of the control tower at Thorpe Abbotts airfield, taken by Jim Harley in 2009). This jacket is modeled after one that’s enshrined in the 8th Air Force Museum near Savannah, Georgia.
