We present the most comprehensive and unique collection of aircraft markings anywhere on the globe.  Our high quality designs drafted after military markings are accurate and exacting in detail. Unlike conventional stickers, vinyl decals appear to be painted on and part of the surface they are applied to. They will not harm any surface and can be easily removed at any time.

 

The Sierra Hotel markings have been flight tested at subsonic, transonic and supersonic speeds ( Warning: repeated transition to and from Supersonic speeds may cause some peeling) and have survived air and ground operations through all seasons.  Place them on your airplane, helicopter, car, truck, watercraft, motorcycle, laptop, helmet, flight bag, clip board, book binder, snowboard, etc….

 

 

 

 

During the Second World War, St. Louis Cardinals manager Billy Southworth received a unique handwritten request. 

It seems that a commander of a Marine fighter squadron in the Pacific made an offer to Southworth that he could not refuse. If the St Louis Cardinals sent baseball caps to his squadron based in the South Pacific, he and his pilots would guarantee to shoot down one Japanese fighter for each cap received. 



Southworth agreed, and sent a box of 20 caps to the island of Vella Lavella.  By early 1944, Southworth learned that the Marine Squadron had splashed 48 Zeros, and that number was still climbing.  The Cardinals manager later discovered that the Commander that made the request, was none other than Maj. Gregory "Pappy" Boyington and the squadron was no less than the famed VMF-214 "Black Sheep Squadron."
