These look great, but I am a little confused. The 50th Anniversary of D-Day was 1994. I believe these are added for the 75th (2019) and 80th (2024) Anniversaries.

These are retro anniversary marking for aircraft from June, 1994. If you look closely at the decal placement guide for this decal set, you will see the year for these markings is for June,1994. So these decals are for the 50th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Just added an image for the cover of the decal set [AIR72-027] and there seems to be even more marking options included than the instructions suggest…

OK, disregard then. I missed that part.
