1. FG-1D. Unit: Escuadrilla 2, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo, Fuerza Aerea Salvadorena. Serial: FAS-205. Circa 1965. The second batch of FG-1D's supplied to El Salvador wore a camouflage in dark blue. It remains unclear if this was the same 'mid-nite' as used on FAH Corsairs, or some other shade. The example depicted here, serialled '205', also had the FAS insignia applied behind the engine cowling. Despite intensive efforts on the part of FAS technicians, the FG-1D '205; did not become operational during the 1969 War.

7. Goodyear FG-1D. Unit: Escuadrilla 2, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo, Fuerza Aerea Salvadorena. Serial: FAS-219 FAS FG-1 was this example that has got an even heavier camouflage. The aircraft was most likely originally painted Gull-Gray overall: this colour was left only on the undersides, while the upper sides have got a heavy disruptive pattern in Light and Forrest Green.
