Vietnam era US Navy Flight Instructor Flight Suit-This is a lightweight green cotton flight suit that is in excellent condition. It is for a lieutenant colonel/commander, with its silver finished insignia on each shoulder, protected by a clear plastic cover. The right sleeve has a United States Fighter Weapons School aka TOPGUN patch. The left sleeve has a Sun Downers patch which was for VF-111 (fighter squadron). The breast patch is for VF-124 Gunfighters which originally was a fleet replacement squadron (FRS) of the United States Navy. Originally established on 16 August 1948 as VF-53, it was redesignated VF-124 at NAS Moffett Field on 11 April 1958 due to a need for an increased number of flight training squadrons, itself necessary because of introduction of swept wing fighters into Navy service. In 1961, the squadron relocated to NAS Miramar, California, which would become the U.S. Pacific Fleet's Master Jet Base for fighter aircraft. All zippers and snaps work as intended. The interior is unlined. The tag was removed but there is an ink stamp and the handwritten size 42R. Excellent condition!

Please note that any "accessories" (i.e. medals, badges, belts etc.) are NOT included unless stated in description!
