Relying on scores of primary source documents, U.S.
Army Aviation Color Schemes and Markings, 1942-to the Present focuses exclusively on how Army Aviation's aircraft have been painted and marked during nearly sixty years of service.
Official changes in exterior schemes, interior colors, and all forms of markings are covered.
Exceptions to "the rules" are also discussed. Of additional interest to the historian and enthusiast will be the wealth of material covering unofficial camouflage patterns, personal markings, and demonstration team aircraft.
Complementing the text is a superb visual survey of Army Aviation color schemes and markings.
This is comprised of over six hundred photos and drawings taken directly from Army manuals, manufacturers' files, private collections, and the archives of the Army and Air Force.
