Never Forget

Back in 1977, the Navy switched for a gull grey and white paint scheme with color insignia, to an overall grey on grey paint scheme for all tactical aircraft. Aviation enthusiasts immediately bemoaned the dull, uninteresting paint schemes. Over the years, some color has crept back in, with most squadrons having a “CAG Bird” that, while still in the overall grey scheme, had unit insignia in color, and often some very nice graphics.

But even with grey on grey, impressive paint jobs are possible.
