RCAF Swordfish photo collection


Recommended Posts

Some interesting photos, thank you for sharing. 

I think first time I saw green/brown on Swordfish (Fairey Swordfish Mk. II (Serial No. HS469), FB 3S 126A, C-GRCN, 1943, Shearwater Aviation Museum, Nova Scotia.)

Certainly not the first time, Brother, I'm afraid to say.

Have a look at the cover of the TBU #135 booklet I published (and gave you a copy of) 30 years ago. 

K8871 (J) from FAA No.785 Squadron in 1941 also wears Temperate Land Scheme... 

Would you like some Lecithin, sir? 🤣

Cheers

Michael

Here are some very nice detail photos of RCAF  and restored Swordfish. Some excellent closeups of the canopy fitted to many Canadian Stringbags. Enjoy!

Codes (W3, N3) repeated on the upper wing of two planes in the first photo. Never seen this before!
