      the practice of painting images on aircraft was banned.
        There has also been some retro "cleanup." There used to be a , in the Air Force museum at Wright Patterson, a WWII bomber
      decorated with a painting of a nude blonde woman and the name of the plane "The  Strawberry Bitch."
        It's been years since I've been there, but the painting had been touched up by adding  bathing suit and the name had been changed to "The Strawberry Blonde."
