    Gents
    There is a known photo of the aircraft taken in 1945 and shhowing it natural metal. What the aircraft would look like back in 1943? Shall it be camouflaged or same as in 1945?
    TIA

    Excellent! Do you know what is A Coleman Collection and how it could be accessed?

    Franek,

    The same photograph appears in the following publication:

    The Lockheed Twins
    Marson,Peter J,
    Tonbridge:Air-Britain,2001.
    pp.363 (photo) & 366 (detailed history of aircraft)

    The photo caption reads:

    Lodestar 18-56 c/n 2147 in wartime service in British Airways markings as G-AGEH in Malta (via A Coleman).

    No mention of Coleman in the acknowledgements or bibliography.

    Col.
