    Hello everyone,

    I have been a longtime follower of your website and forum, looking at and downloading aircraft photos, reading information, etc. I am interested in the WW2 era and especially the military aircrafts.

    I became a member today because I need help from you guys. I am a graphic designer and helping a friend who makes leather jackets with the name of his new line of bomber / pilot jackets. It is a dream project for me but my knowledge in aviation and the era is not enough for me to come up with a name.

    Can anyone give me suggestions or ideas to come up with a name for this line of jackets? (The name can be in English.)

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestion.

    I assume these jackets are going to be modeled after the A2 style jackets?

    Flight Line springs to mind...

    Thank you Cdat88. Good ones :)

    Yes, I think A2 style will be in this line as well as other styles, such as the one shown in the attached image.

    I was there in 90-91 too. Interesting place. Kinda Eastern/kinda Western, good food and it seemed that everybody smoked. I wish i woulda done some scuba diving there.

    I'd like to see Istanbul and Troy.


    I have two carpets from Adana that have held up well.

    In Izmir, there were young kids running around with scales, small bathroom scales the kind you weigh yourself with. They were asking for money if you weigh yourself...

    and back then I was skinny!

    Thanks again everyone!! for your name suggestions and warm welcoming :)

    Everything you guys remember from Turkey is still the same :) Comiso90, my favorite beer is also Efes!!! Cheers :)

    Comiso90, I live in Istanbul but was born and raised in Ankara. I, too, have been to Adana and Izmir several times.

    Actually, I lived in San Francisco, CA for 5 years, from 2000 to 2005. I traveled to LA, San Diego, NY, Vegas, Chicago and done a road trip around Texas. I miss SF so much. After I came back it was a hard time for me. As they say in the song "I left my heart in San Francisco" :)

    I am very happy to meet you guys here :)
