D-Day stripes

sailor (Mountains&Ocean)
D-Day stripes were equal width black and white and wrapped around the wings and the rear fuselage of Allied aircraft. Shortly after the invasion, orders were sent to remove the stripes on the topside of the wings and rear fuselage, leaving the stripes on the underside of both. This was likely to reduce identification from above.
