Real Aeroplane Company (RAC) based at Breighton in Yorkshire. North American P-51D Mustang (44-72773 'QP-M' / G-SUSY) called 'Susy' in 2006.

Trumpeter/Heritage's 1/24 scale Supermarine PR IX Spitfire. The reason some photo reconnaissance Spitfires were painted pink is that it was believed the aircraft would be camouflaged against the rising and setting suns when taking photographs. This however did not settle the concerns of its pilots, not out of any sense of a perceived attack on ones masculinity but rather because they felt it would not camouflage them as stated but make them stick out like a sore thumb.
