It is a vintage pattern, I couldn't find a date on it but it cost 25 cents new. Judging by the design of fighter planes (they are, aren't they?) I would put it at from the 1940's. It's also knitted in chunky wool, so knits up really quick - the back took me under a week of evening knitting to complete. I am enjoying this, and even the prospect of making pockets and fitting a zipper doesn't put me off.
However, there is a certain gentleman in the house who thinks he'd like one of these as well...I might not be quite so enthusiastic second time around!
