This volume describes and illustrates the colours and markings of all the piston-engine fighters that served with the Portuguese military from the end of WW1 to the 1960s. A small nation with modest-sized air arms, Portugal nonetheless used a wide variety of iconic fighter aircraft over this period, from the SPAD S.VII of WW1 to the F-47 Thunderbolt after WW2. French, British and American aircraft were used, including such famous types as the Hawker Fury and Hurricane, the Spitfire and the Bell P-39 Airacobra. This profusely illustrated book covers all these aircraft, with brief details of their service use and comprehensive details of the colours and markings they carried. Besides the many photographs, full colour profiles illustrate the markings used. Detailed colour notes and precise description and illustration of national markings over the period complete a book that will be invaluable to aircraft enthusiasts, historians and modellers.
