An Indigenous Australian fighter, the Boomerang was hastily built during the desperate years of World War 2 as a stop-gap fighter. Used mainly for ground support it gave a sterling performance before being replace by more up to date fighters.

    It is nice to admire some local colours…very different from those we had fought with.

    thanks texianlive, the colours do stand out, I can imagine that they would have been a little on the drab side during the war. cheers.
