Colors for close-in and manuvering flying


close-in manuvering colors

When a plane can swap top and bottom very rapidly, it is important to know what side you're seeing... A ZAGI type for instance....

Somethin' Extra

For medium to distant flying, with manuvering involved, top-bottom becomes very important, as well as orientation. These planes show why a light colored top and dark colored bottom are most effective: The white stripes on the bottom of this Sometthin' Extra really enhance manuvering at a distance..
