Does any one know if the fighter stripes on EAF fighters in '67 silver paint schemes are on the undersides as well as on top?

I can't find any images that show the undersides of the MiG-21s and MiG-17s. Some seem to show the stripes stop midway on the wing.

I have plenty of images showing the top surface, but little info on the bottom of the wings. Some of the images show. The leading edge, and it looks like the stripes terminate. But there is an image of a EAF MiG-15 showing stripes on the bottom.
