From 1950-1952 in the Korean Conflict, all USAF flight jackets were manufactured in a blue color, but due to the lack of camouflage if pilots were shot down over water or enemy territory, the USAF changed their color of flight jackets to OD green. These blue flight jackets were therefore only made in very limited numbers and were even back then, a very desirable and collectible item.
