The strange colour scheme - was it taken after the war broke out? do you have any photos of Swissair DC-2's at shoreham in about 1940?

Hi
The red-white strips on the wings and the fuselage are neutrality marks during the war. They prevented the aircraft from being shot down! With them Swissair was able to fly during the war!
