Sea Furies in Korea - deletion of B&W 'invasion' stripes

Recommended Posts

A useful reference from the book 'With the carriers in Korea’ by John Lansdown' about the black and white identification stripes that Sea Furies and Fireflies had painted on their Wings and fuselage.

 

Chapter Nine, HMS Ocean 5 May - 8 Nov 1952. Page 279:

 

'both squadrons (this would be 802 with Sea Furies and 825 with Fairey Fireflys) eliminated the black and white identification stripes on wings and fuselages of all the aircraft, an Admiralty instruction that had been issued so that enemy MiGs would have more difficulty seeing them'.

 

The instruction was issued on or about 21 Aug 1952.

 

Cheers,
