Actually they do make mistakes on purpose. Usually it’s when the correct thing “looks wrong”. So say a Flanker with a radhaz on only one side of the radome - they put it on both sides. I think that may have been one of the Paris Air Sow birds IIRC. Or if number spacing “looks odd”. They do it because they know that the number of complaints they’ll get is just not worth doing it right! There’s other cases. Elsewhere, you have to wonder. They have all the information repeatedly given to them and they still get it wrong (back to front etc), so, er, deliberate?
