Alex, note that the fuselage insignia on the A-20 looks just like that of Etienne's AT-6. I just received confirmation from an impeccable source that the color reversal for the middle and inner portions is indeed due to the effects of monochromatic black/white film. The true colors are, from the center, blue-yellow-red. And while this fuselage insignia was in use, the standard triangle roundels were used on the wings.

thanks, Archangelski..

i've just found more about the Angolan (recent ?) markings ; Hello, Gerard :) ) ;http://fanangola.webnode.pt/escola-do-lobito/

friendly, Etienne

Many thanks to you too Etienne, especially for the L-39 in Angolan colours.
PS : the rest of the site is also of interest. Many rare pictures (Il-76, L-39 without camouflage near Su-27UB, ...) but also strange things :confused: (J-10 in Angolan colours is particularly a troubling view of imagination)

great site Etienne. So we can be sure that the star in the roundel is history.
