Airy Merry Christmas

The picture of the S-3B with Santa splattered on the nose probably wasn't an original idea.  When searching the interwebs and my own collection for the various Viking pics the other day, I came across the following similarly themed paint-job:


But that got me to thinking about a bunch of Christmas Cards I had found several years back.  I don't remember where I picked them up, and I haven't seen them in stores since, but I guess you can get them from Stonehousecollection.com.  They were a big hit with my Navy buddies, several of whom had left Naval service for the big leagues, but everyone appreciated the theme.  They're fun, aviation-relevant, and even more to my style- a bit irreverent.  Be advised, no animals or elves were harmed in the making of these cards (or this post).  Here you go:










Those are the ones I remember from the pack, but I found a couple others:





And the most irreverent picture I found isn't from the card collection at all, but it is kind of cool. 

Parents are urged to be cautious as the picture contains some material that parents might consider inappropriate for children under 13 years.


Santa-BREAK RIGHT- CHAFF- FLARES!  Hope you make it.
