    More versions ? Or, maybe, during some unknown period this country has version of insignia with vertical stripes ?

    Just confirmed that they are from Venezuela.

                  well, as a Venezuelan myself I didnt know about the use of vertical stripes in early Venezuelan air force a/c... if so this is very uncommon or maybe a mistake then... I wonder how you got the confirmation?

                        I sent the photo to Dan Hagedorn. I don't think there is another person on the face of the earth with more knowledge of Central and South American, as well as Caribbean, aviation. Here is his reply:

                        "Yes, those are Venezuelan aircraft but note that the aircraft in the rear is the extremely elusive Osprey Special, which has defied definition. It was apparently a single-seater.

                        Besides Venezuela, El Salvador, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama (strictly speaking, not Ospreys) and Bolivia were the solitary users of the C.14R Osprey. You might want to check the book from Schiffer which I completed for friend Francis Dean entitled 'Curtiss Fighters' for more details."

                            He was referring to the photo with three Ospreys in flight. The rear one in the background is a single-seater.
