British Commonwealth Jet-Driven Warbirds


Loosely defined, World War II’s British Commonwealth nations included Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. To be sure, there were other lands and nations (India is just one of these not included in the former group), but to look at the aircraft of the Commonwealth from World War II , we’ll focus on the former group here. We’ve assembled a photo album here, of all sorts of warbird aircraft of these nations, from World War II and beyond.

Don’t look too closely at the airframe and color scheme connections on these warbirds, as many times the original aircraft is different and far removed from the color schemes. The colours represent a different aircraft in many cases…

These are all jet-driven aircraft – this second collection in tandem with last week’s prop-driven album. Yes, RAF Harriers, VC-10s and Tornados were recently retired from RAF service, so they meet our definition of being warbirds! Enjoy!
