Royal Air Force

 

Here you can find skins representing the aircraft of the Royal Air Force. Skins are sorted chronologicaly. Please remember that you can find more stuff under the section 'Czechoslovaks', where are aircraft skins flown by Czechoslovak pilots, the major part from Royal Air Froce. Please also note that not all of the ZIP files contain a complete skin. Sometimes a file is missing, in many cases the cockpit & virtual wing view files. But almost in every file are the PCX files for futher 'remakes' You can edit them freely and as you want. Click on each picture to start downloading.

This is Clostermann's second Tempest - the famous 'Big Charlie'. With this plane, Clostermann earned 14 of his overall 33 air victories. It shows it even with the invasions stripes which were used during the Operation Overlord. The stripes were then overpainted and remained only on the belly.
