    Default 80 Squadron Gladiators 1941

    Hi guys

    My latest query again concerns Sqn Ldr Bill 'Cherry' Vale - and 'his' 80 Squadron Gladiator, N5784. I have been given to understand that when this aircraft was assigned to Bill, he had its spinner painted cherry red, hence his subsequent nickname of 'Cherry'.

    Can our camouflage/markings experts verify the feasability of this, or did all of 80 Squadron's Gladiators have red spinners?

    Cheers
    Brian
