Roundel Katanga 1960-1962

The breakaway province formed its own air force during its brief period of independence between 1960 and 1962. Fin marking was the national flag of red over white split diagonally with a green stripe. On the white area were three orange crosses. Roundels were red, green, and white. The three crosses were often marked on the central white spot. Later aircraft carried a simple orange cross.

We have the roundel with review from [cos98]. There is a plate at this webpage showing the flag as fin flash.
