                  Doug Arnold's NH238 wore a red spinner in the 1980s. Charles Church G-MKVC also had one during the maiden flight while in primer.

                    Does G-FIRE count (a bit)?

                            Me with my favourite red nosed Spit in 1993. G-FIRE a close second for me (well, maybe joint first)
