F-84E... note they have their “Buzz(kill)” numbers... FS is the aircraft type and the numerals afterwards are the unique airplane identifier... this was done because many WWII veteran pilots were buzzing towns and flying under bridges... and other awesome fighter pilot type stuff. These numbers were to allow cranky people to complain... who weren’t even fighter pilots. This was abandoned by the late fifties.

Note the natural metal finish and how colorful USAF planes were at one time. The Red Line is a turbine warning stripe... don’t stand there because if the engine fails that’s the most dangerous part of the aircraft.
