I have been offered this VN era suit. This is all I have for pics. Is asking $40, says it is minty.

 

Any concerns? Thanks

That is not Vietnam era. We were issued the summerweight cotton flying suits and insulated winter suits. I saw a few older officers with this one. They were evidently from Korea or just after. The one in my picture is the one issued prior to and during Vietnam prior to the development of Nomex.

This is the Air Force summerweight flight suit of the 60s. The one in the photo is an older version. They were mostly blue.
