OK, I have never worn a flight suit, and would look like Mr. Bib if I did. However, for those who know the answer the question:
Why aren’t flight suits camouflage colored?
All that I’ve seen are OD green, Navy blue, or Khaki (all Army as near as I can tell), no doubt a requirement from way back when they were first ordered, and probably the Nomex could only be made mono-color. That was then, this is now.
It seems camo is getting more and more complicated and effective, but the usual flight suit is still OD green. Seems to me that they should be camo, so that when they decide to stroll on the deck they have a better chance of hiding.
It’s always possible that they exist and I haven’t seen them (or they’re a huge secret), but it seems odd. If the Chinese can send a man into space, we can make camo flight suits.
Can anyone enlighten me?
