Blue Impulse with Coffee

It's very common to see cars packaged with can coffee. In fact, as I write this, one brand has a line of Lotus miniatures out. But, other than for caricatured forms from Lupin III, Ultraman and Batman, there hasn't been much in the way of airplanes being branded with coffee (ignoring the ANA flight attendant line a few years ago). That just changed. UCC has 6 fighters that have been flown by the Japanese Blue Impulse air acrobatic team. The pamphlet that comes with the jet includes ads for Koukuu Fan (Aviation Fan) magazine. Again, there's nothing on the UCC website mentioning this campaign, and no URLs on the packaging (just a phone number).

This one is the F-86F. The others in the line are: the T-2, the T-4, the T-4 10th Anniversary special, and two other paint job variations on the F-86F.
