Will have to post photos of my bail out and walk around bottles.

Also my size 46 F-1 blue bunny suit. Hey T.A.R.F.U. did you know I had a blue bunny suit? 8-)

What about the men who keep you jockeys flying then? I don't have much AAF info but from the pics I have it seems to be standard army uniform with HBT coveralls or trousers with whatever you can get for a jacket and hat to suit the weather conditions. I have pics of guys wearing the four buckle overboots as well due to the airfields being so muddy during the 11 months of rain we get in the UK.

Great idea to start this thread,
Does anyone know where to get a decent pair of A6 Flight boots? I have a pair of XXL and they are a bit too big for my feet aswell as having a tear in the ankle on one.
I was also given a "ww2" chest chute at the weekend, I need to post pics to see what the experienced reenactors think, I think its a post war one to be honest.
I do have a Yellow Group parachute harness being delivered tommorrow from the states, will post pics when I get it :D

If you are portraying ANYONE who would be getting into or around oil DO NOT wear rough outs. They learned that hydraulic fluid especially would soak through the boots and cause foot problems. Capped toed garrison boots for doing ground crew. PM me later when you can.
