    No stranger to the A-2, here's Tommy Lee Jones in the forthcoming Captain America. No idea as to the maker unfortunately.

    Quite looking forwrd to Cap't America having read so many Marvel comics as kid - let's hope it's better than the TV film some years ago - the trailer certainly looks good and, quite graphic!

    Also, what's happening with George Lucas's Tuskegee Airmen - there was much tlak of this film on this site and as far I heard it was 'in the can' - anyone know anymore, like a realease date or have I missed something? It's all gone quiet!

    Cheers

    And they wore some pretty accurate flightgear too. Besides the A2s.

    Got that movie on DVD for Xmas so recently watched it again and yes the flight gear appeared pretty accurate - many of the jackets I thought looked so good I question if they bought oringials especially for the movie - chances of all fitting the actors concerned suggest that's doubtful but as I say some cool jackets there!!

    cheers

    Catch-22 is one of my favorite books of all time. Some day I'm going to get an A-2 and put a "J. Yossarian" name tag on it, just for the hell of it and to see if anyone out in the world gets the joke.

    Not too sure if this has been mentioned but what about "Psycho" in "Stripes"? Does anyone know if the A-2 he was wearing was original or a well worn repro?
