IIRC, those F-15s are painted up for the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  Definitely attractive schemes on all three; wonder how long before decal sets are available?

"Hey, don't look at me, it wasn't my idea it to short-sheet the Captain's bunk! I just put Laxettes in his chocolate jar & cling-wrapped his toilet bowl!" said Carl, defensively.
"This is the Captain. We have a little problem with our engine sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and, ah, explode."

Even the KC-135 has retro markings. All four aircraft would make a nice decal set.

Reminds me of a scene in a Finnish classic: "The Unknown Soldier". I believe it was left out of the third film version:

HMS Prince of Wales pictured this morning. She’s loading food and stores, undergoing certification, and her crew are now on board.

It’s possible she may set sail for the first time as early as next week.

The Royal Navy will soon have two super carriers at sea at the same time.
