Great pic! The Air Force has gone retro.

They got the established date wrong, though. The USAF was created into its own independant service was 1947, not 1917.

Awesome photo!

The paint job commemorates the 90th anniversary of the 111th FS, not the USAF.

The 90 years doesnt have to do with the creation of the usaf, but rather how long planes have been flying at Ellington Field.

The 1917 date reflects how long the 111th squadron has been around. it was Army Air Corp before it became the US Air Force in 1947
