Editor's Notes

The Type B-15C replaced the earlier B-15B flying jacket. By 1950, the USAF began changing the color of most of its flying clothing from Olive Drab to Air Force Blue to force a separate identitiy from the U.S. Army. The designation „MOD“ stands for modified, meaning the B-15 flying jacket has been modified by removing the fur collar, replacing it by a wool knit collar. Modification was intended to adopt new larger hard shell helmets interfered with the mouton collar causing discomfort. Since the modification had to be performed after the jacket was originally made, it is typical to find the actual collar knit & thread colours around collar and waistband not matching the overall knit & thread colours used. Modified B-15 jackets were required to have new white labels, indicating this new modified status sewn on the jacket. In all other ways, the flying jacket remained a B-15 of whatever spec it was originally.
