    I'm already searching for the drawing 30-1415, along with some other items. I can add the 9-77 spec to the list.

    It may take awhile. Trying to get the original A-2 spec 94-3040 took months and it had to be de-classified too. Nonetheless, whatever I find I'll post it here first.

    Its almost comical that the specs for a flight jacket made in 1938 were still classified in this day and age.
    I cant possibly imagine why they were classified in the first place.

    Blimey, 33, you've been a busy man. Your hard work is much appreciated. A Goldsmith A-2 has got to be the Holy Grail of flight jackets! Somebody somewhere might have one in their attic!
