Description
(ZEMKE'S WOLF PACK) ARMY AIR FORCE A-4 FLYING SUIT
American aviator's olive drab A-4 flight suit, issued to a member of "Zemke's Wolf Pack", the 56th Fighter Group. These flight suits were introduced in the 1930's and were standard issue throughout the early years of the war, up to 1940. Label inside the collar identifies it as being a size 36, and property of the US Army Air Force. In very good condition. From the extensive collection of 62nd Fighter Squadron, 56th Fighter Group ace FRED J. CHRISTENSON (1921-2006). Christenson collected these items during his service with "Zemke's Wolf Pack", the nickname given the famous 56th Fighter Group. Hubert A. "Hub" Zemke commanded the group, composed of P-47s which closely escorted American bombers. While under Zemke's command (he would be later captured), the 56th FG claimed over 500 of the eventual 665.5 German aircraft the group destroyed. Christenson himself shot down 21.5 aircraft, once downing six planes in less than two minutes. With a copy of a reunion flyer, patch, and paperwork from the 2006 sale of Christenson's collection.
