Sitting on the shelf at a Navy Exchange is a piece of commemorative naval aviation memorabilia that’s as authentic as a $20 Rolex.
As blogger CDR Salamander posted, the garment depicted below is for sale at an unnamed exchange. The issue: The aircraft depicted on the shirt has zilch to do with the Navy — it’s from some other part of the military.
The Scoop Deck couldn’t verify what type of plane is on the shirt, and we didn’t want to make an educated guess because of a debilitating fear that we’d make a blunder as huge as, say, commemorating the centennial of naval aviation with a non-naval plane.
Anyone want to take a stab at it?
