It comes as no surprise to me that one of the winners of the (Starlog Special Issue) Official Wing Commander Movie Magazine's jacket giveaway contest is an active member of the online WC community. From February through April 16 fans had the chance to send in a postcard and enter a contest for one of two jackets worn in the movie. Kurt Roithinger was the first winner we're aware of. He had the following to say in #Wingnut this afternoon.
I just got one of the WC movie crew jackets that Starlog was raffling off, in case anyone is interested. :) My significant other will get it. She's a huge WC fan. It'll make her month. :) It's not leather or satin. I kind of doubt it's gore-tex, though it look like it. It's the same stuff you see modern aviator jackets made of. It's reversible (turn it inside out and it's safety orange...), has 5 pockets and the WC movie logo over left breast and 'wing commander cast & crew luxembourg 1998' embroidered on the back. I also got a letter here (conveniently NOT addressed to me.. :) saying it's one of 2 they gave away.Congratulations gren!
