  8. Here are a few detailed Hunters of the RSwAF.
  9. Canopies that have become yellow could be exposed to ultra violet light and the yellowness may disappear. I've had canopies in the sunny window for months and the wellowness have almost disappered. I haven't tried UV-lamps, but that should work.
