Hello everyone,
I would have liked to have explanations about these strange markings on the tail of this plane.
Thanks for your help.
Laurent.

What specifically?  It looks like orange on the tail...maybe arctic markings?  Same with rudder.  Just a thought...

Hello Metalbasher, in fact what is strange are the red and white bands on the rudder. Only this aircraft has worn this kind of markings.I think without being sure, that this marking is commemorative recalling the creation of this unit during the Second World War, and who was affected in the Pacific?

I'm somewhat clueless, way before my time but what you are suggesting would make sense.  Stripes could have been applied for a period of time in similar fashion to C-130s, F-15s etc that were painted with the 75th Anniversary Invasion Stripes commemorating D-Day Invasion.
