    friendly, Etienne
    Etienne, note the roundel on the fuselage of the Nicaraguan T-6. They did use a blue-yellow-red roundel on the fuselage (see the P-51 profile), but the colors on the T-6 are reversed. Could this be an unusual variant, or just an effect of the black/white photo? Not sure, but looks like triangle roundels on the underside of the wing. I will check with some contacts about this one. It looks very odd to me. Thanks for posting it!

          Alex, note that the fuselage insignia on the A-20 looks just like that of Etienne's AT-6. I just received confirmation from an impeccable source that the color reversal for the middle and inner portions is indeed due to the effects of monochromatic black/white film. The true colors are, from the center, blue-yellow-red. And while this fuselage insignia was in use, the standard triangle roundels were used on the wings.

                          Many thanks to you too Etienne, especially for the L-39 in Angolan colours.
                          PS : the rest of the site is also of interest. Many rare pictures (Il-76, L-39 without camouflage near Su-27UB, ...) but also strange things (J-10 in Angolan colours is particularly a troubling view of imagination)

                            great site Etienne. So we can be sure that the star in the roundel is history.
