Most Aeronca Champions were cream on top with
an orange lower fuselage splash.
However, I have seen some blue fuselage
splashes and even, if I recall, a green one.
Whatever the combo on this
one, clearly the black registration did not contrast enough.
I wonder if they all came in this way and the regos
were transferred to the tail (a la
CF-DFM) later? This shot is by Leo
J. Kohn. CF-DFN was operated by the
Winnipeg Flying Club at the time.
