In 1981 I delivered an O-2 Skymaster to DM, as our unit was being re-equiped with the A-37. Now, when you deliver a plane to the boneyard, you carry with you all the paperwork that aircraft has accumulated over the years, including the government title. After landing, you taxi over to a line shack, and in a very businesslike process the pilot acts as the agent of the command that previously owned the aircraft, and signs ownership over to the depot.
The morning we landed and taxied over to the shack, they parked us a few yards from two brand-spanking new F-14's. However, these weren't like any F-14's I'd ever seen; they were painted in olive drab, with no insignia whatsoever. As we walked over to inspect them, we could see that they were pristine: paint flawless, not a speck of grease or dirt on the landing gear, scuff marks from only a handful of landings on the tires, not a scratch on the canopies.
"What's up with the Tomcats?" we asked one of the linemen.
"Oh", he said, "those are the last two Iranian jets to come off the production line at Grumman. No way Reagan was going to let the Ayatollah have them, so they rolled out the factory doors in Bethpage and flew directly out here."
