    ....I, similarly had arguments with people who say that the orders only covered single and twin-engined aircraft. I point out the hundreds of Stirling and Halifax glider tugs and paratrooper aircraft!

      had a warning order about the stripes.  Not the size, color and placement, but to get the planes ready for something.  It seems like the best explanation for the BMF aircraft to have a coat of primer under the stripes.  Can't prove it and received Fierce opposition form an 8th AF experten that NO SUCH order went out (at least to the 8th AF).
