  TextEN  In 1942 USAAF Captain Paul Hexter designed a black and white dazzle camouflage paint scheme reminiscent of a WWI warship. While it was moderately successful, the application and maitenance of the scheme was labor intensive and ultimately not adopted.
The P-51 Mustang was used to test a paint scheme to confuse an opponent's perception of the aircraft's orientation in flight. The pattern was painted in black and white and was identical on both sides of the fuselage. The upper surfaces of the wings, tail and fuselage were painted in olive drab. A single US insignia was painted on the upper port wing.(279)(280)(281)
