The B-10’s brief reign ended in 1944 with the flight jacket that would endure for the rest of the 1940s and become what most people today view as a proper bomber jacket. The B-15 had a mouton fur collar and the wool knit waist and cuffs of many of the previous models but was produced in a variety of different shell materials, including nylon and a cotton-rayon blend. Also new was a pen pocket high on the left upper arm of the jacket, a detail that would remain (and grow) for decades to come.
This jacket went mainstream just as the so-called jet age began, with Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier in 1947 and The United States Air Force becoming its own independent military branch in the same year. Planes had changed quite a bit since the quaint little Wright Flyer left the ground and so had the clothes of the people that flew them.
