Here's something you don't see every day, fellow Seibertronians! Our very own News Admin, William-james88, has found some interesting images posted publicly to the U.S. Air Forces Central website, the official website of the United States Air Force. What William-james88 found was pictures of an F-15C Eagle jet aircraft emblazoned with none other than a Decepticon faction symbol on the fuselage, near the nose of the jet! This seems rather a propos, considering that the original Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp toys from Generation 1 were essentially models of F-15 Eagle fighter jets. Why the U.S. military would want to be associated with the Decepticons, however, is anyone's guess. Eagle-eyed (no pun intended) fans will notice that to the right of the Decepticon logo, we see a bald eagle head followed by the name "Starscream" written in a stylized script. Take a look at some of the photos below that show off the Decepticon insignia and Starscream's name most prominently. Note: these images are credited to Tech. Sgt. Jocelyn A. Ford, who apparently took pictures of the aircraft while under post-flight maintenance somewhere in the Southwest Asian theater.

What do you think of this little nod to Transformers out in the real world? I know I've seen Autobot and Decepticon vanity stickers and ornaments on cars many times, but seeing Transformers referenced on an actual, functioning military vehicle is new to me! Tell us what you think in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

I can tell this news post was written with me in mind. :lol:

But yeah, that's awesome. The F-15 is a sexy, sexy beast. Reminds me of the British tank that they put a Dai-Gurren-Dan insignia on, and Homura of Puella Magi Madoka Magica fame appearing on a JSSDF helicopter.

I hope this is a test for a Bumblebee sequel joined by Starscream.

In the 2007 movie Starscreams appears in the sky from nowhere, so it's more than possible He will be on the next movie. And in many movies the production has worked with US military, so...

Am I just dreaming? :-?

The more I look at this picture, the more I think it's a real teaser for the upcoming sequel of Bumblebee
