USN AN 6551 Tropical Flight Jacket
The USN AN 6551 flying jacket was designed for tropical conditions and was crafted from a single layer of tightly woven, khaki-colored cotton. Designed in the 1940s it underwent slight modifications in the immediate postwar period, leading to a reclassification and remained in active service well into the late 1950s, and some continued to be worn into the 1960s.
