A major change in US military flight jacket design occurred with the introduction of the CWU-45/P, which replaced the MA-1 in 1977. The nylon version of the US Air Force and US Navy was of course still designed for the colder climate zones. (-5°C) When the jacket was designed, the officers realized that they needed functional pockets, but they didn't want their pilots walking around with their hands in their pockets. The consequence of this was that the flap pockets were used at an angle and higher up in the chest area.The Velcro fastener protects against "FOD" (foreign object damage), i. After Tom Cruise wore the jacket in the 1986 film Top Gun, it became very famous and a fashion highlight.
