Title: 3 CAACU
Post by: Hamden on March 12, 2011, 04:07:00 PM


Does anyone have any knowledge of Spitfires used by 3 CAACU at Exeter Airport during the late 1940's early 1950's. Colour schemes, serials and code markings would be of interest.

I know of one a MkXVI in overall white scheme with a pale blue letter B under the cockpit, post war red/white/ blue roundels and fin flash with serial RW393 which was at Exeter 1953/4. This airframe is now on display with the RAF Museum in the more normal Grey/Green/Grey finish.

Many thanks in advance for any help/information

All the best
