What happened ?

Well the paint crew all kicked in for what turned out to be a very big lottery ticket. The owners plane was in the shop and they decided to do one more job before permanently walking out the door....

Bloggins when you contract a paint job for one of Her Majesties aircraft It is important to specify the job exactly ! Just noting in the specifications that the shop was to provide a "distinctive and colorful paint scheme representing the spirit of the Para's" was not the brightest move.

Gee boss this X Royal Marine thinks it worked out just fine !

No, it's a length of dental floss...

After running out of SU-25s, newly equipped Russian ground support missions are hoping to be out of range before the Ukrainian forces stop asking "what the $*& was that"
