Yeah maybe so, but I like to think it is for flying inverted.

I thought they usually just put the page of decals or stickers in the box and it is up to the user to stick them on, if they want to.
I don't remember getting a plane where the decals or stickers were already applied for me. But maybe I did, I just don't remember.

This plane was made for those with dyslexia.

I course I wouldn't do such a thing but just wondering.

I am sure that if the person putting the decals near the end of the production line could not read English or Arabic numbers for that matter. So they very neatly put the numbers on backwards. I wonder how many they did like that before the supervisor saw it and corrected it.
It might be interesting to see what Tower thinks about it. Maybe they'll give you a store credit or something.

That's got to be worth a fortune....like the rare stamp that had the biplane printed inverted...or a double struck coin.
