End of Fliegerkombi Production- 1941


Per order BLB 41, Nr.520, 24 April, 1941, Fliegerkombi manufacturers received instructions to cease production, and to shift over to the production of the 2-piece flying suits prescribed in that same order.

However, as there exist Sommerfliegerkombi specimens dating from 1942, orders notwithstanding, various manufacturers likely continued work of batches of material which were already cut, delivering the garments to the Luftwaffe as late as 1942.
