Why the right-half white/left-half black(?) paint on the underside of the plane?

 

Just wondering.

Likely to make it easier for the anti-aircraft artillery to tell friend from foe.

 

 

Thanks for sharrin

 

My pleasure.

That got my heart rate up! The Spitfire still gets my vote for the single most beautiful plane ever.

On under carridges, the Grumman Wildcats had a geared retraction setup. have read articles that hands on board would watch the Cats bob up and down while the pilot's were cranking the gear up after take off :blush:
