The comment about Pink British Recon aircraft was due the recon mission parameters. Those were flown near or just after sunset, and the pink was very hard to see against the western setting sun and twilight glow, as the German aircraft were flying from the East to inetrcept them. At that latitude (about 50 North), twilight could last more than and hour, so you've got a huge backdrop of orangish sky to hide against.
