Flying Colors - cover thumbnail

"Since the first coats of drab-coloured dope were applied to the natural linen skinning of military aircraft in order that they would better blend with their backgrounds, and a need was first seen for some means of endowing aircraft with a national identity, the camouflage of aircraft has become a science and their decoration an art form."
