World War 2 A-2 Jacket?

I’m asking for my grandpa who found this jacket at a yard sale. Everything on it appears to be from the right time period, but all the googling I have done on the tags say they should be orange and white, the ones on this jacket are not. They are both black
The top larger tag says
“DRAWING NO. 30-1415
CONTRACT NO. 1978-01
AVIREX
REG. U.S. PAT. OFF.
U.S. ARMY AIR FORCES”
The bottom smaller tag says
“OUTSHELL: 100% GENUINE LEATHER
LINING: 50% NYLON
50% ACETATE
FILLER: 100% POLYESTER
DRY CLEAN ONLY BY A PROFESSIONAL LEATHER SPECIALIST”
There is a very small tag with a tiny L on it attached to the largest tag.
The top left side of the jacket (if you are wearing it) has an American Flag, a British flag, a Denmark flag, and an Australian flag.
The inside is purple, or possibly faded blue, and it says in large red letters with a golden box around it “CLARK FIELD
LUZON, 1945 ”
In white lettering it also says
“5th Air Force Headquarters
(bullet points)
Nichols Field, Luzon, 20 Sep. 1941
Darwin, Australia, Dec. 1941
Java, Jan-Feb. 1942
Brisbane, Australia 3 Sep. 1942
Nadzab, New Guinea, 15 Jun. 1944
Owi, Schouten Islands, 10 Aug. 1944
Leyte, c. 20 Nov. 1944
Mindoro, Jan. 1945
The inside also has a white star with a red circle in the middle with golden wings on it.
On the back it says 5th Air Force with a felt like material around it.
The back also has a bage shape thing made from leather that’s divided into four sections. The first has a hand of cards (4 5’s and an A), a pistol, a girl in a black dress, and a palm tree in sand.
It also is surrounded by the words SOUTH WEST, H.Q. BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA 1942, and PACIFIC PATROL
At the very bottom in tiny white letters it says AVIREX ALL RIGHTS RESERVED (looks much newer than the jacket itself)
I would like to know the worth and if you believe it’s real or not? Thanks!
