I remember seeing this at the USAF museum in Dayton, OH. It left quite the impression on me. I was probably 10 years of age, give or take, and it was quite a “wow moment”. Similar to when I saw the Saturn V the first time. Must have been quite a sight to see during takeoff with all engines going.
Reducing reflected light and making aircraft less visible from a distance, a number of RAF aircraft were painted Desert Pink (or similar tones) during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. The paint used was washable, so it could be easily removed.
