Kickass Paint

Posted by aaron on April 10, 2008

Some countries allow their fighter units to paint a jet for special occasions or just because it’s something kickass cool to do. Here are some examples of what fighter squadrons can come up with when allowed to run amuck. You’ll notice that all of these jets are from the German Luftwaffe. That’s not because the Germans are more creative, imaginative or artistically inclined. I think it’s just because they have more paint and, let's face it, beer can be inspiring.

First something simple, black and white.

When it says Bavaria, it says beer.  I love this paint job. Makes me kickass thirsty.
