Recommended Posts

Found these pictures of some vintage flight gear. I thought this pic was pretty cool.

Last picture. Look at the huge patch on the back of each flight suit.

Nice, always wondered what the backpatch was used for. Here it is in color. The 335 TFS was responsible for the initial operational testing (Category III) of the F-105.

Thanks. Those are F-105B models. This was probably taken at Eglin where the 335 TFS temporarily located to do their operational testing in the late 50s/very early 60s. Soon they would be replaced by the F-105D.

Wow, great photos and that patch is stunning in color Randy!  What is it's length and width out of curiosity?
