Hi colleagues, here is another rare case. The known very rare painting scheme for multicrew aircrafts 37-39 circa. Until now, it was believed that only the R-10 and DB-3 were so painted, but analysis showed that the first few pieces of the BB-22 were also so painted. Color scheme is - the whole airframe is aluminum, the top of the stabilizer and wings with engine nacelles are green. It is important to note that this is a serial factory sheme.

Hi Psy,
you have posted most interesting photos. I heard about such scheme a lot of years ago, but I thought that it was an invention because i had never seen any photo.
What was the story of it? When was this made, and on how many planes?
Regards
Massimo

My friend Andrei Averin believes that the scheme appeared due to the erroneous execution of the order to change the color scheme of the air force. The order did not say literally about painting the top and sides of the fuselage, so they painted planes according to the letter of the order, and not common sense.

We also have no consensus that the bb-22 belongs to the same group, he believes that these are just distortions of photographs. There are pictures of BB-22 and just gray, in the interpretation of which there is no difficulty, but these are special.

Interesting. If the color of the B-22 is grey, it looks darker than the usual AE-9. Couldn't it be some primer instead? Some yellow-green?
Or maybe when they passed from grey-silver finish to green-blue, the pieces were painted separately on the line, then they had some more aluminum fuselages and grey necelles and mounted them to green/blue components...
