It depends on what color the rest of the plane is.

If the rest of the plane is white then red.

If the rest of the plane is a dark color, then yellow.


If the plane is going to be almost all red or all yellow, then yellow with a dark trim will be easier to see. If it's going to be all or almost all red, then red with light trim will be easier to see.


Brighter/light colors tend to be preferred on the top.

Darker colors tend to be preferred on the bottom, at least for trim to improve visual acuity. A white bottom with black blocks on the bottom of the wing and tail with a colored top helps a lot.
