There will be new Air Force uniforms this fall. Friday night, the school gave fans a look at what the team will be wearing against Georgia State to celebrate the Airpower Legacy Series.
Earlier in the week, Air Force unveiled what it calls a “Sharktooth” helmet. Now we’re getting a look at the full uniform. It’s awesome.
Here’s more on the Airpower Legacy Series, via Air Force’s official website.
The Airpower Legacy Series was developed by the Air Force Academy athletic department to promote and celebrate the history of the Air Force’s aircraft. The series begins this year with the football team wearing an alternate uniform for the Georgia State game on Sept. 10 in Falcon Stadium to celebrate the Tiger Shark teeth nose-art which has been represented on multiple Air Force aircraft dating back to World War II. During the WWII era, fight plane pilots were called “Flying Tigers” and were part of the U.s. Army Air Corps, which later became the Air Force. The helmets worn for the game will feature a shark-teeth design like those painted on the aircraft.
Here’s a look at the uniform. We’ve also included photos of the helmet from earlier in the week.
