What colors would camouflaged Burmese Spitfires be? I'm thinking Dark Earth & Dark Green over Azure Blue. Any thoughts or color photos? I did a search on Google Images for Burmese Air Force Spitfires and came up with a lot of RAF photos, and some profiles, but that's about it so far. I know that they came from Israel, but I'm sure they were refurbished in something that wasn't a desert-type scheme.

Israel sold Burma 30 Spitfire Mk. IXs in 1954. These aircraft were overhauled and repainted in Israel and ferried to Burma.










Museum piece.
