How do pilots get to have their names on the fighters? This question might sound stupid but can any pilot have their names printed or do you have to have some kind of seniority? It must be a great experience when you first get to see your name on the plane.

In my former unit, the top 18 crews based on their scores from the bombing range had their names on a plane.

Do the crews always fly on the same plane, or can it happen that Joe & Jim fly on a F15-E with Mark & George written on it?

It all depends on aircraft availability. I only had one flight with the pilot I was crewed with in the plane that had our name on it.
