    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me what country/unit had a red triangle with a black border on it? I have a ww2 model that has this on the wings and fuselage and I'm curious where it is from.

    Thanks in advance.

    You sure it's not orange? If it was orange it would make it Dutch.

    edit: I just saw your other post in the aircraft ID thread. Definately Dutch.

    Showing my ignorance, but who are they, Chris? Do they use similar markings?

    If the background colour was red, that'd pass for an Austrian roundel too....

    What is the function of the CAP, Chris? Are they a branch of the military, like a civil guard, or something?

    from Civil Air Patrol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is the civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force (USAF). While the CAP is sponsored by the Air Force, it is not an operating reserve component under the Air Force or the federal government. Since CAP is not part of any uniformed service branch and its members are civilians, it is not subject to the laws governed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice. CAP is a non-profit volunteer organization with an aviation-minded membership that includes people from all backgrounds, lifestyles, and occupations. It performs three congressionally assigned key missions: emergency services (including search and rescue), aerospace education for youth and the general public, and cadet programs for teenage youth. In addition, it has recently been tasked with homeland security and courier service missions. CAP also performs non-auxiliary missions for various governmental and private agencies, such as local law enforcement and the American Red Cross."

    They had a few machines at Reading and thats what reminded me of it.
