Imagine this in front of a judge? "I think the oil streaking is over done"

With the accompanying photo as proof, it'd be a showstopper! If I was a Wingy-thingy guy, I'd build that in a heartbeat!🤣

How did they manage to land it without mishap? No way you could see through the cockpit. Must have pushed the canopy back and guestimated by looking left and right over the wings, and dodging the oil coming in. Nice bit of flying.

And this my friends, is why fighter pilots always wear goggles! I bet the crew chief was not impressed when this one came in!

What if it was the Crew Chief's fault in the first place?🤔 ... Uhh, she needed a new head-gasket, but I forgot to torque down those dang bolts.🙄🤫 ... 🤣

The metal finish is pretty dull too, maybe they were hoping to get the whole plane cleaned.
