The air force CWU 45/P flight jacket is a modern version of the original MA-1 bomber jacket. The 45/P was worn by US Air Force pilots in 1950s. The jacket shelters from the cold and rain with military grade fabric, just as it protected pilots in flight in the most precarious of weather conditions. It is the classic look for aviators, and fashion icons.
