    Similar to my Army thread, this will be a dump thread for all post WW2 USAF uniforms and items I've acquired over the years.
    Again, nothing in chronological order, just as I get to things.


    First off, a beautiful USAF OG-107 utility shirt, patched to Sgt. Elliott of the Colorado Air National Guard's now deactivated 138th ACWRON
    (Aircraft Control & Warning Squadron) based at both Greeley AFB and Buckley ANGB.
    The patch seems to be a secondary or unofficial unit one, reading in Latin:
    "Eternal Vigilance Buys Freedom"

    A really neat CWU-45/P Jacket, Flyer's, Cold Weather Uniform, with patches from either a USAF test pilot/crewman, or maybe a Rockwell or Eaton employee
    Seems to be missing a squadron patch of some sort on the upper right chest, probably a test squadron patch
    Tag is wiped but seems to be from the 80's or 90's

    An MA-1 with patches to the 65th Aggressor Squadron based at Nellis AFB in Nevada that I found in a vintage shop amongst a pile
    of other various flight jackets including the next one below.
    Don't know much about this one; the 65th flew F-5E Tiger II's as the patches mention, but it also features an F-20 Tigershark patch
    The F-20 was suggested for trialing and use by Aggressor squadrons, with the 65th possibly in the running to receive them, but
    the program was cancelled for several reasons, and two of the three F-20's ended up crashing

    Found with the above Aggressor jacket, this black commercial Alpha Industries MA-1 has patches from the
    N/ATF Naval/Advanced Tactical Fighter and CTF Combined Test Force programs, as well as the Pratt & Whitney YF119
    and General Electric YF120 engines.
    It seemed to belong to a Northrop/McDonnell Douglas employee involved in the production and testing of the YF-23 "Black Widow II" and
    "Gray Ghost" against Lockheed/Boeing/General Dynamics' YF-22 in 1989-1990 for the USN and USAF, which lost against the YF-22.

    Sage Green Cotton Sateen Utility Shirt, ranked to a Sgt., 1950's
    These were an early AF designed utility uniform to stand apart from the OG utilities of the Army, but it wasn't well liked
    and often substituted by OG's and eventually fully abandoned by the AF in favor of the OG's.
    The Light Sage cap I posted earlier above was a part of this uniform

    An early Sage Green Jacket, Man's, Field dated December 31 1959, with its alpaca wool liner, sadly in poor condition.
    These, as opposed to the sage utility uniforms, were well liked and continued to be made in OG until the M65 began to be issued
    These would be paired with the Heavy Sage caps like the one I posted earlier above

    The whole light Sage Green utility set together
    It was said even new pieces varied in their shades, that combined with its baggy, sloppy appearance lead higher ranking
    USAF members to despise it and kill it off by the early 1960's

    A 1977 dated OG-107 that belonged to a man my dad worked with
    All of my dad's OG's were sadly destroyed when my grandparent's houses' basement flooded, and his M65 was stolen out of
    his truck while he was fishing shortly after he got out
