The MA-1 History
The MA-1 became the flight jacket of US Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew in the 1950s. It discarded the previous attributes of its predecessor, the B-15, because of interference or change in equipment of pilots. To make the jacket reversible and give it a high visibility, the manufacturer added an Indian Orange lining. This will allow rescue personnel to see the pilot if a plane crashed. Popularity led to the production for the civilian population in the military green and black. The jacket has evolved, but is still the universal jacket in anyone’s wardrobe.
