    Primer. You're seeing oxide primer.

    Keith, is the red paint a primer coat? Commercial aircraft have green or yellow primer and the B1-B has green.

    Oops, Andre answered my question two minutes ago.

  4. The archives has several GP 7 pictures with the red primer showing too.

    Mark Davidson (mark) suggested that #801 might have been a GE U25B Demo, however checking resources reflects that GE U25B Demos 753 - 756 became Frisco units 804 - 807 and 51 - 55 became Frisco units 811 -815 but not in sequential respective; 51 -> 812, 52 -> 814, 53 -> 815, 54 -> 813, and 55 -> 811.

    Some of the GE U25B Demo units had a red roof, but since 801 was not one it's curious that it is showing red undergarments indicative that the primer was not properly prepared before the application of black paint.

    Pictures of two variations of painting on GE U25B Demos:
