  1. Folks: I've done some looking around and I can't seem to find definitive measurements for the WWII Invasion stripes for a P-51 Mustang. Wikipedia says this: The stripes were five alternating black and white stripes. On single-engine aircraft each stripe was to be 18 inches (46 cm) wide, placed 6 inches (15 cm) inboard of the roundels on the wings and 18 inches (46 cm) forward of the leading edge of the tailplane on the fuselage. National markings and serial number were not to be obliterated. I figure someone here has a quick answer...so what do you think? I thought the wing stripes were a different width than the fuselage stripes. Thanks in advance! Chris
  2. If weather holds - my buddy Allan and I are off to the UK leg of the D-Day remembrance events at Lee-on-Solent tomorrow in Allan's '44, ex USAAF Piper Cub to join a fleet of C-47s and some other interesting machinery and people. Over-nighting there - then due south on Wednesday - across the Channel to Cherbourg. Weather looking varied at present - so we'll see how far we get - but hopefully spend rest of the week in and around Normandy. The aircraft served in France after D-Day and subsequently was taken on charge by the post war French Air Force - before going on the civil register in the 1950's. Will take lots of photo's and post any particularly interesting ones here. Bit of a special trip - for the aeroplane as well as us - wish us luck!! Iain
