1. Great story. Thanks. Here's what cargo pilots wear.

I flew a 747 for Nippon Cargo '89-'99.
Just three guys and a jumbo jet full of freight.
We wore uniforms.
Pretty snappy.
Navy blue.
Cap with scrambled eggs.
Coat was double breasted with brass buttons.
Gold stripes.
The whole nine.

At top-of-climb on an 8-10 hour flight we'd go in the back 747 upper deck, one by one, and change into 'inflight gear'.

Me: Nylon jogging pants, T shirt, heavy wool socks.
Very comfortable.

Just prior to beginning of descent we'd reverse the costume change.
Cargo beat carrying passengers hands down.
