RAAF No. 457 Squadron (Fictional) - updated Feb 2020

Type - Skin

This fictional skin is a tribute to an Australian spitfire squadron that disbanded after Japan's surrender in 1945. The spitfires were painted with several distinguishing motifs including:

• "sharkmouth" under the nose
• "Grey Nurse" just forward of the cockpit
• "Ace of spades" on the rudder

The tribute includes a two-tone upper surface with subtle references to the unique details present on the spitfires.
