A trifle earlier, 1958. 114 Sqn's Chipmunks were the last apparently to fly without strakes, their Chipmunks not receiving them until the aircraft were returned to the UK in 1959.

While totally agreeing with the thrust of your post, the two A90's I got to fly in the late 1960's had electric AH's, which I think were standard for the King Air.

Are you sure about that?

I recall when the B733 replaced the B732, one of the differences was that they didn't have stairs fitted (thank God for that; the B732 internal stairs were horrible) and...

Sunfish:

The Boeing upper skin paint is definitely called Corogard.

BMS primer is bloody good stuff - when my ex-RAF Chipmunk was being re-painted the paint shop COULD NOT strip it off.

I think so. I understand this went on a lot, similarly in earlier times there was some interchange between RFS and UAS aircraft based at the same location.

vmcdemo:

WP867 was with Southampton UAS from 1953 to 1965, and your photo depicts a fabulous restoration in that unit's markings. Given the yellow bands then it's marked as it was prior to 1959.
