Aeroline by Plus Model have added a standing P-47 pilot to their range of pilot figures. Mike Wood takes a look at this figure.

Quite puzzling

A P-47 pilot?

Does that exist? with other words, did every plane have its own outfit for the pilots? I did not know that the air force, and aircraft manufacturers were into fashion

It's a little known fact that P-47 pilots had to have their trousers cut differently, in order to decrease the risk of chafing in the cockpit.
