Of course, that's complete BS, except on the Trident.  However, on
some aircraft, there is a longeron at exactly the bottom of the
fuselage, so the fin antennas are typically mounted slightly offset
from the bottom, between the bottom and adjacent longerons.  This
might lead one to believe the plane is taxiing crooked.
