Royal Australian Air Force Colours

This chart covers the World War II period. Presented colours had been produced to Australian specification. Of note is that many aircraft types imported from the UK and USA retained their respective finishes. Even aircraft paints were imported from these countries. See British and American charts for more details.

This chart has been last revised in September 2006.
