IDF P-51d paint colors.

This blog is mostly a reference sort for me.  I don't have  many people reading.  This is why the blog is a little goofy in what I post.   Years ago a did a IDF P-51d using what I thought where the correct paints.   Found this a while back only to misplace  the information. Here it is that least I can find it now.

These days are gone forever.

Aviation Archaeology site

By accident I found this great site.  The blog is run by a group of English aviation Archaeologists.  It is amazing what they have found and uncovered over the years.  It is worth the time to stop by read the articles.

USAF video on the B-58

To me the B-58 was a beautiful aircraft.  The aircraft outline looks so  kool.    Enjoy the video.
