They accidently reversed the AA colors when they painted it. I guess they attempted to fix it?

I wonder if there is a reason why one A is red and one blue? Like,, why is red usually on the left? Somewhere in the history of American Airlines is probably an answer for that...... i'm curious.

Gary, Justin, Bruce... I've seen variations of this on several aircraft. I have no clue what they're up to. Maybe somebody's last day in the paint shop?
