Voiceover: And now we return to Martha Stewart Living, Aviation edition.
Martha: A green garnish will spruce up an old aircraft any day. Although some pilots might cringe at the idea of foliage in the engine, I think it's a good thing.

I can just picture the pilot who is about to fly a mission walking across the apron towards the aircraft. He sees the hedge lodged in the engine and thinks to himself...

"Damn it! We need to get more military funding... that kind of camouflage just isn't acceptable. It's downright embarrassing!"

Don't have a caption, but what is the tank to the right of the engine? Is that a fuel tank? I've never seen one on a commerical plane before.

Its not a commercial aircraft, its a South African Air Force B707 tanker/transport/sigint/elint aircraft. The pod houses an air-to-air refueling drogue.
