Unusual markings...
« on: October 11, 2008, 10:12:31 AM »
Hi mates,

A well known plane in US markings, but very rare in French markings...

This fact happened in 1976 when a French delegation visited Mc Donnell, if I remember well...
The plane is a TF-15A. This is the Airfix kit.

Hi mate,

The official name of this color is : Air Superiority Blue. I don't know the FS reference...

This plane, sn 71-291 was the 12th Eagle built and the 2nd TF-15A, later renamed F-15B-4-MC (cn 0012/B002).

Cheers,
Jicehem
