1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Jacket is in brand new perfect condition and has never been worn. The size is XL.

    This jacket is a B-7, designed for the airplane mechanics stationed in the Aleutian Islands…people who really needed something unusually warm.

    The hang tag included is for a different jacket, the M-444, a short style bomber jacket (as were all bomber and pilot jackets) made for high-altitude bombing. There were a bunch of different configurations, with different thickness and degrees of fur depending on the desired degree of warmth. Some were used by American pilots and some were used by the British RAF. But the B-7 was made for the American forces in Alaska.

    Edit: Sold.
