    In mid-1940, the Navy tested a number of aircraft camouflage schemes designed by the noted artist and Naval Reserve officer McClelland Barclay. These tests had no lasting effect on U.S. Navy aircraft markings, except, perhaps, to persuade Naval Aviators that disruptive camouflage schemes had little use on planes intended for employment at sea. Some photos of the aircrafts using Barclay’s scheme, can be found in the link:
