Gasholder navigation - wasn't there a case where a direction arrow was painted on the top of one totally forgetting that as the gasholder rose or descended it also rotated

Around the Rainbow - I was gliding in front of a wave cloud one day and had a perfect brocken spectre to the side of me. I was wishing I had a camera and when I landed I went to get my lunch out of the side pocket whereupon I found my camera. Never seen one from that day to now

At the airport in New Orleans this morning they had both of them side-by-side. I scanned through a few of Clegg's segments and quickly found several errors.
