Air Force Blue Uniform

02 Dec 1998

The Chief of Air Force Advisory Committee approved the introduction of a new-look Service Dress uniform for Air Force personnel. The change involved replacing the then current blue-grey coloured uniform (adopted in 1972) with a dark blue shade, now called ‘Air Force blue’. This was the same colour as the first Air Force uniform introduced into use early in 1922. The re-introduction of Air Force blue returned the Air Force to the distinctive colour of the Service’s first 50 years.
