A very good friend of mine is a retired P-3 and Jet Blue pilot.

 

Beautiful jacket.

 

Any history?

It has P-3 patches from VP-19 crew 11. It also has EC-121 patches from VQ-1 (FAIRECONRON-1) crew 21 (aka Charley Browns A$$H0/&S).

 

So this guy was an Aviation Electronics technician (AT1) who flew as aircrew on the EC-121 and P-3 aircraft. Probably in the late 60s to early 70s is my guess.

 

Great looking jacket!!
