Returning from a successful sortie ... I mean display.The aircraft represents one of the Spitfires which flew to the defence of Malta from USS Wasp. They were painted deck blue so as not to stand out against the aircraft carrier's sea camouflage. Subsequently they flew in combat in this colour scheme because there was no time to repaint them.
