312th Bomb Group Jacket

This B-10 flight jacket is unusual since it illustrates the B-32 "very heavy" bomber. The 386th Bomb Squadron of the 312th Bomb Group was the only operational combat unit equipped with B-32 Dominators, flying combat missions in the final weeks of the war against Japan. Engineer-gunner Sgt. John S. Munsell bailed out of a B-32 on Aug. 28, 1945, and four hours later was rescued at sea.

This jacket was donated by Mr. John S. Munsell, Worthington, Ohio.
