Commonwealth Boomerang ‘VH-USB’ Lady Southern Cross
‘VH-USB’ was actually A46-30, used in the film Smithy to replicate Charles Kingsford-Smith’s Lockheed Altair Lady Southern Cross.

From late 1943, during the New Guinea campaign, Australian single-engined, single-seat aircraft began to receive white wing leading edges and empennages as a recognition aid. This view shows the overall Foliage Green scheme as applied to CA-19s. The white areas were also applied to Foliage Green/Dark Green/Dark Earth/Earth Brown/Sky Blue (variations) finished aircraft.

This illustration shows the typical finish as applied to the Boomerang’s starboard side, although there were variations. It should be noted that there were distinct soft edges to the camouflage demarcations.
