I recently bought some american airliner models from Herpa and noticed that the American flag is printed backwards on the right side of the planes. At first I thought it was a printing mistake. When I looked for photos of the same planes here at airliners.net, I noticed that the flags are printed backwards in the real planes also. Does anyone know why that is? Does this happen only for American planes, or is this an international law? Any info would be great.
PS. Please excuse me if this question has already been asked. I didn't find it in the previous pages.
