These experimental flying coveralls were worn by command pilot Brigadier General Robert J. Goewey, commander of the 1607th Air Transport Wing at Dover AFB, Delaware, in 1959. Prior to his retirement in 1965, he was commander of the Eastern Transport Air Force, the Atlantic airlift arm of the Military Air Transport Service.
The coveralls have a leather pilot badge above the chest pocket. A label inside reads “Experimental Test Sample Clothing Branch, 30 June 64.”
