Hello folks, what do you know about this flight suit? It's a minty thing! Are they rare or common? I think it may be a late WW2 (45) suit that was never worn. I like the leather covered spring steel holder on the left knee.. for holding map or flight computer? Any guidance on this one is appreciated, I have a chance to pick it up locally. Best, Kevin.
