In this final talk given at the 2019 Wings Over New Zealand Forum Meet at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram, Christchurch, the museum’s resident Safety And Surface Technician Nathan “Barf” Bosher talks about applying paint to the collection’s aeroplanes. Barf’s fascinating talk goes into the whys and wherefores, the methodology, the chemical principles, and the decision making and planning involved in a historical Air Force paint scheme, whether it’s for a static museum aircraft or a flying warbird.
