Red shirt, wings, nametag on flight suit
« on: July 23, 2018, 15:03:53 »
Question:  What's the reason that the shirt, wings and nametag of the guy on the right (not this year's demo pilot) are red instead of blue?

I believe that based allowing colour on flight suit patches it's a squadron thing. The 443 guys out on the left coast had a shoulder patch for one of the trips I did that was a yellow background. When I was part of WOps in Cold Lake we had red, white, and blue all over our nametags and shoulder patches.

Red/yellow is the 410 squadron colours. The Sqns wear colored patches on Friday and apparently during the airshow as well. Though it seemed there was a variety of combinations of color/non color patches amongst the flightsuit wearing crowd.
