This vintage B-15D flight jacket comes from the Michigan estate of Captain T.J. Baker of the US Air Force. This variant of the B15 has a nylon body and mouton collar.  Made by Rolen Sportswear, this jacket has a Crown zipper on the sleeve pocket and a Talon main zipper, which may be a later replacement.  The shoulder is stenciled with the USAF insignia and there is a leather patch on the breast with Captain Baker’s name and rank.
