Description

This black and white photograph features two men standing in front of an Air Force airplane named "Urgin Virgin II." The men are shaking hands. One of the men is wearing coveralls and a cap while the other man is wearing a white undershirt and cargo pants. The airplane features a drawing of a pinup girl in short shorts and a bikini top beside the title of the plane. "Dan-Daisey" is stenciled on the other side of the planes title. An unidentifiable drawing is on the nose of the plane. The plane appears to be in front of a parking lot with cars parked in front of steps leading up to the platform where the plane is parked.
