Paint ****-ups are not uncommon. Fin flashes on back to front, incorrect positioning etc. It worsened when jobs started getting contracted to civvy gigs. My particular favourite: PLACE NO STENCIL HERE.I wouldn't mind betting it's happened in the real USN at least once. We had a Gazelle flying around the Falklands with a fackoff big NAVY in black under its fuselage for the whole of my tour down there.
