The Air Force football program will honor the United States Space Force with its latest Air Power Legacy Series alternate uniform, which will be worn against Navy on Oct. 1.
The helmet shifts from blue in the front to black in the back and features silver lightning bolt decals on the sides. The front helmet bumper displays the Roman numerals “MMXIX,” which represent the year the Space Force was established (2019).
The back helmet bumper, meanwhile, features one of four different words that represent the core values of the Space Force, including courage, commitment, connection and character. The branch’s historic Delta Symbol can be found on the back, as well.
The left sleeve of the black jersey features one of two different Space Force base patches – either the Peterson Space Force Base in Colorado Springs or Buckley Space Force Base in Aurora – while the right sleeve includes a tonal United States flag.
The player’s names appear on the front of the jersey, opposite of a blue Nike Swoosh, while the Falcons’ primary “AF” logo has been fused together with the Polaris star and its orbit at the base of the collar.
That same logo appears on the right hip of the black pants, which have two blue vertical stripes with “USSF” down the middle in gray, matching the numbers on the jersey. The look is complete with the Space Force Motto, “Semper Supra” – meaning “Always Above” – on the back nameplate of every jersey.
This marks the seventh iteration of the Air Power Legacy Series uniforms, as Air Force celebrated Tiger Shark nose art in 2016, the F-35 Lighting II in 2017, the AC-130 “Spooky” gunship in 2018, the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III in 2019, the Tuskegee Airmen in 2020 and B-52 Stratofortress in 2021.
The Falcons are 12-1 all time when wearing their Air Power Legacy Series uniforms, including wins at Navy and Colorado State last fall.
