Cockpit USA’s Black Eagle G-1 Jacket commemorates the bravery of the pilots and aircrew of the PBY Catalina “The Black Eagle”. One of the many PBY aircraft that flew night stealth missions, the squadrons became known as the “Black Cats” during WWII. During the warmer months in the South Pacific, pilots modified their jackets by removing fur collars, adorning them with hand painted back nose art, bomb symbols and aerial victory flags indicating the number of missions the crew endured.

Stunning ! Review by Laurent

When I've seen that jacket displayed on the Cockpit website, I immediately jumped on it. I have several jackets from Cockpit and never got disapointed by the level of quality. This G-1 makes no expection. It looks good from evey angle and the quality of the patches is stunning. I like my jackets to be not too roomy, I took a size 38 (1,78 meters for 73 kg) and I'm very happy with the fit. And with a bit of patina, it will look even better ! (Posted on 12/1/2017)
As usual, Cockpit USA surpasses my expectations Review by Jack

This is the third jacket I've bought from cockpit USA and at first, having already purchased the B-3, I thought that nothing could even compare to the level of detail and care that went into producing it. But this G-1 just about matches that. It's a real tribute to those who served in the Black Cats squadron. The fit is perfect, and even though I'm usually a 38, it was recommended that I order a size 40. I'm glad I listened, because it's absolutely perfect. (Posted on 10/16/2017)
