For our 40th Anniversary, Cockpit USA is proud to offer our Limited Edition hand painted “Bottoms Up” A-2 Pin Up Jacket. This jacket is a replica of the A-2 worn by the pilot of the Consolidated B-24 Liberator, “Bottoms Up”. The hand painted artwork on the back of the jacket is referenced from the actual Nose Art that was painted on the fuselage of this World War II bomber. The 400th BS and 90th BG patches on the front chest and 5th Air Force patch on the upper right sleeve are all applique embroidered. The “Bottoms Up” Pinup Girl art is carefully hand painted, each painting unique, making each jacket a one of a kind. The horsehide leather we use for this jacket has been expertly finished to allow your garment to develop a patina, yielding an aged and vintage appearance. These natural shadings and characteristics are by design and a normal process exclusive to Cockpit USA. Not sure which size to get?
