“Doc’s Boy” G.H. Armstrong flew 30 missions on a B-24 bomber called “Puss-n-Boots” with the 577th Bomb Squadron. The winged 8th Air Force insignia was a popular motif for painted flight jackets. From the collection of Richard Peacher.
This is a fantastic example of how you can transform a jacket. We refashioned this WW2 bomber jacket using V V Rouleaux's striped grosgrain along the hem and interior cuffs, faux fur trim inside the jacket edges and diamanté trim along the pockets.
