    Hi,
    Does anyone out there have any color RAAF pics in the pacific war? I know there are color pics of USAAF in the pacific, but i've only seen a few pics in the book RAAF Camouflage and markings! Cheers!

    Fantastic pics guys. The Beaufighter pics were a suprise. Never knew they existed! Thankyou!! I dont think color film was as available in Australia as it was in the USA!

    Thanx for that Wildcat. Seeing Kittyhawks and Beauforts in color is fantastic! I just wish there was more footage!

    Here's a well-known pic of aircraft that were flown by Aussies:

    Thanx Buffnut, i found the avatar pic off the net, but i forget the website! I hope its ok for me to use it! I think it depics Buffalo from 453 RAAF Squadron. Flown by Sergeant H.H.Griffiths. The Osprey Aces book for the Brewster Buffalo says that he was credited with two Ki-27s destroyed. griffith.jpg

    Hi Lindsay,

    I know the pic - the original is hanging on my wall! :confused:

    The website you found it on was www.warbirdforum.com. Given that I'm named as the owner and frequent the associated forum (the Warbird's Forum message board Forums), I suppose I could get all arsey and say "Well you should have asked me before you used it" but I guess that's what I get for posting the pic on the web.:oops:

    Great shots have seen the Shrike(Helldiver) , Vengance and Tigermoth before but the Beaufighter shots I haven't seen before and one of them has a 13 Sqn Ventura in the background, now if someone just had some colour 22 Sqn Boston shots.........
