Wow, colour!! Top one looks possibly colourized? but the lower one looks definitely 'Kodachrome' and the middle one looks genuine and 'untouched'

The top one is colourized. The last one is a restoration in Norway.

Found this colourized photo on Facebook yesterday. This guy does some nice work.

Thanks, David. I didn't know where it was from. I've had it for a number of years. After posting it here, I GOOGLED restored one and Oslo came up. I thought it was the same aircraft.

It is the same aircraft but it was recovered and restored (and photographed after restoration) in Iceland before going to Oslo. My great friend, the late Ragnar Ragnarsson was instrumental in the recovery and restoration project.
