I am putting together a 1940 scenario. I am looking for French Air Force ground crews in 28mm or it's equivalent. Also looking for photographs of same. Pre-war to 1940. Color illustration of working uniform would be helpful.

So what you may be missing is…French. The search term you're after is "Armee de l'Air 1940." Here's a color plate for EUR5.00: link Interestingly, the aircraft mechanic pictured is not wearing a jumpsuit, but a WWI-era fatigue uniform. Here's a page showing the blue vareuse, and the peaked parade uniform cap, plus the blue capote: link
