With the end of World War II, the U.S. military entered an unprecedented golden age. In this era, the world of aviation is entering a major turning point, the age of the jet, which can be called the “industrial revolution of the sky.” Adopted in 1945, the jet aircraft reached maturity in the latter half of the 1950s, and the performance of practical jet fighters progressed, and the performance of the T-33 Shooting Star, which had been used as a conventional jet fighter, was obsolete. has become Northrop’s T-38 Talon, which flew for the first time in 1959, was developed there, and was highly praised for being equipped with an afterburner while being a training aircraft and being able to demonstrate supersonic speed. In the mid-1950s, when Northrop developed the F-89 Scorpion, an air defense interceptor, it is now a well-known story that it specially prepared a red MA-1 for the pilot and shot the seat of the main interceptor. As for the T-38 Talon, Northrop is also producing the L-2B dyed in Indian orange for practical use, and you can feel the enthusiasm for the promotion of the T-38 Talon. Northrop has gone out of its way to prepare a jacket with the appearance of a new fighter, but it tells us how close and important the relationship between the fighter and the flight jacket is.
