[quote="skyhigh"]We can still manage with The MkI , why we are escluding the MKI what's wrong heq ..now its not only the colour scheme even the version mela
Here if you whant I have a photo of a MKI with (Desert scheme)!!
there is even a picture of a mk1, with black undersides (half of I assume)
About my 242sqn hurricane, about the scheme. Since I did not find a picture of the aircraft LE-X in color I had to contend with one in B/W, taken from behind in a rather darkish exposore. The codes and the fact it is a IIC is visible but not the serial number. Doing some reseach, I found an aircraft operated by 242 with the letter X assigned, serial no. BE555, which when I checked the number I found that aircraft in the serial no.s from BE550 - BE570 seen to have been all trop IIc. About the desert scheme or not, again this is is debatable since we need a color pic of the aircraft in question, but one thing has to taken into consderation. No 242sqn and 605sqn were never intended to operate over Malta but were destined to operate over the desert, thus it makes some sense that the aircraft would be finished in the desert scheme, not the temperate scheme. Hope that this clarifies some questions, but to be 100% sure we need a color pic of the aircraft with the serial number, codes, filter, etc...
oh if digital cameras were available in the 40s
