Army-Navy Aircraft Standard Colors Books
This object is not on display at the National Air and Space Museum. It is either on loan or in storage.
The United States air forces used a variety of paint standard systems until 1943, when the Joint Aircraft Committee's Army-Navy Aircraft (ANA) color standards were accepted. This system provided a standard for all Army, Navy, and Royal Air Force aircraft produced in the United States.
