PC-6 at YRC Refuge Cove


Recommended Posts

Being an Air America Scheme, I suspect the flag is that way in a similar vein to US military shoulder patch flags, which on one side are mirrored so as that both flags are facing forwards and never back, as they believe the US flag should never be in retreat.

Btw, I just see that the American flag on the plane's right side is set incorrectly. 

Back in the early 70s I built an Airfix 727 kit (TWA livery) and I couldn't figure out why the starboard Stars and Stripes decal was mirrored. I think I saw a photo in one of my books which had the flag that way but I didn't know why until years later.:wacko:

That is the reason why, which I had forgotten, thanks for the reminder!:)

Excellent Greg!  Really beautiful location for this plane, and this plane always makes me think it'll arrive in the next zip code a day before the pilot! :lol:

Thanks Jack!
