Oerrr he seems to be a Wingco...
Googled a picture of him in Oz. He seems to be an expert on aircraft colour schemes.
For myself, I never cared too much about that so long as there was some paint on the surface (memories of polishing an unpainted helicopter at Halton with wadding), and I didn't like the shiny polyeurathene used by the RAF in the late '60s (shiny camouflage on Harriers). A combination of extreme anhedral, shiny paint, rain and issue RAF shoes had me sliding off the end of the wing many times, lucky it wasn't far to fall. We much preferred the matt finish used later, though it was a bit harder to clean. Took a few knots off the top speed, as well... Replies:
