The FW 200 was in the high-visibility colours worn AFTER WW11 broke out. Denmark was initially neutral, before being invaded by Germany. So this must have been AFTER 1938. This aircaft actually escaped to the UK and was operated by BOAC before being written off in (I think) a landing incident.

I was wondering about this bright orange color. Are there any pictures of the FW 200 in BOAC colors ?

It flew in RAF camaflauge, with the BOAC Speedbird on the nose and it's UK registration (no doubt someone will remember what that was better than me) on the rear.

I wonder whether the questions of turnaround time were scrutinized with the same attention, at the time...
