Thanks Art, I just drooled all over my keyboard. That's not supposed to happen 'til I get word that my NX-01 Enterprise has been released.

All I had to climb on were the occasional freight cars left on the siding by the Reading RR. :)

Probably "AN Yellow-Orange", kind of a school bus yellow.

The one NATC picture I've seen was NMF for the most part; another navy photo that might have been NATC shows dark and light upper/lower--presumably blue and yellow/orange, but it might also be OD/neutral gray unchanged from its AAF scheme. The last USN P-59 was eventually done up in dark blue overall. There, that ought to cloud the issue thoroughly!

The Steve Ginter book on the P-59, "Air Force Legends No. 208" by Steve Pace, just says "Chrome Yellow" for the wings. (page 73). Three good B&W pictures but no color.
