Default Request to Borrow: WWII airman and mechanics clothing

REQUEST: Do you have WWI or WWII flying clothes I could borrow for a photo shoot? Looking for flight jackets, hats, scarves, mechanics overalls, etc.

Later this summer, I want to reproduce the photo from "Field of Dreams" but with pilots.

I live on an active farm and have a grass strip. Corn is an infrequent crop. A few years ago I had corn and it was a good year. The stalks were 9' high. I looked at it from the runway every day and thought of the baseball field scene from the movie "Field of Dreams".

"Build it and they will come".

It seemed so obvious. I needed to try to create that image but have vintage pilots, bomber crews, etc.

I didn't pull it off that year. I have a second chance now so I'm starting to ask for help early.

I promise to take very good care of your items and be sure to ship everything back with care and attention.

I don't know when the corn, clothing, and lighting will all come together so I am hoping to find enough outfits far in advance.

I think you can see how an aviator's version of the iconic "Field of Dreams" would be a great project this summer.

Update: the corn is already 7' and still growing. It's been nearly perfect weather. The grass runway is begging for this photo shoot this year !
