Sample text

2, XN728 ‘B’, 92 Squadron. 2s appeared in Natural Metal overall displaying a red and yellow arrowhead either side of the nose with a roundel superimposed. Even as deliveries continued their fins were painted Royal Blue while the fin flash was moved forward near to the leading edge of the fin. A white-coloured code letter was positioned near to the fin tip above the Squadron motif. Small variations to the scheme were made, the first from June 1964, when Royal Blue was extended along the full length of their spines, to be followed a little later by the application of a white outline to the nose markings – including the roundel – prior to September’s Farnborough airshow.

However, despite the increase in numbers, because so many were subsequently retained for trials and development purposes the quantity remaining proved insufficient to equip more than two operational units – namely 19 and 92 Squadrons at Leconfield between November 1962 and May 1963. 2 was the Air Fighting Development Squadron (AFDS) which received XN771 ‘M’ on 14 November 1962, by which date the AFDS was based at Binbrook. 3s. 2 came a small change to the style of the unit’s red/black nose bars to which a white outline was added.

By now toning down was very evident with squadron markings reduced further in size and moved to the fin. XR749 was painted in this scheme in August 1982, however, by May 1986 it had been given 56 Squadron commemorative markings. 3, XR749 ‘BM’, was photographed in a well-worn and stained ‘air superiority grey’ scheme comprising Medium Sea Grey wing, tailplane and fuselage top upper surfaces with Camouflage Grey fin and remainder of the fuselage. Wing and tailplane under surfaces were Light Aircraft Grey.
