The spinner on the 817 squadron RAN aircraft would be light blue.

Is that Sacre Bleu? Ha! Greetings from Texas, mate! (Is the instrument panel on the FAW21 still lighting up OK?)

Were they always light blue ? I have seen several pictures of Fireflies on Sydney wearing "Korean" stripes but with dark spinners in addition to pictures with the light blue ones. Wonder if aircrafts with dark spinners were replacements or maybe 817 changed the colour of the spinner at some point ?

I believe the EDSG spinners were the loan aircraft we got from the Royal Navy.

The ones we bought home with us had the light blue spinners (my VX.388 included)

Oops, my mistake, Steve! Hope that didn't blow my cred!  What wrecks are you stripping, he asked, off-topic?
