The fin art was made out of stylized lettering featuring the cartoon faces of Laurel and Hardy. She was als referred to as "the great 208'. The name came after having wing fuel dumpvalve or overflow valve issues that took long inspection of the internal fuel system. Eventually we found some small pieces of plasic balls that got stuck in the valve and iniitaded a fuel dump.
