PS... at that '13 WOH air show, our club's MV's were positioned around a then current flying B52 bomber, and though I can't recall the name at the moment that painted on the leading edge of the fuselage, there was also the head oi a native Indian painted below that name. We were informed by some of the 52's crew that as soon as the plane got back to it's home base, the Indian head (and name of the plane) was going to be painted over as may offend certain folks.
Additionally that day, the primary guest of the show was a long time retired Lt. Col. that was the last surviving member (and co-pilot of the man himself) of Jimmy Doolittle's famous B25 squadron. That gentleman was Richard Cole, who resided in Texas (before passing away I believe back in '18) autographed one of our club members Humvee and also another member's fighter plane helmet.
