Air Force Space Command Grounds the Flight Suit

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. (AP) -- The Air Force Space Command says its men and women who aren't assigned to flying operations can no longer wear flight suits or Air Force leather jackets after Oct. 1.
The command said Friday the move is designed to save money and standardize appearances.
The policy affects about 1,800 personnel in space and missile operations. It applies only to Space Command, which has headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., and units at 10 other installations in six states and Greenland.
Space Command says it expects to save $670,000 a year by not purchasing the flight suits and jackets.
The ban still leaves Space Command personnel with a variety of uniform options, depending on the occasion. They include the traditional "Blues" uniform, dress uniforms and camouflage air battle uniforms.
