Aircraft Name

above on the 1991 line 84-1244 the name or identify is posted as Eat my Shorts Hussein is it possible to change that title to say “The Bartman” which is what I called my jet during Desert Storm... also on a happy note I was able to go to Nellis AFB and see the Aircraft flying and was escorted out to the flightline and touch it again after 28 years of transferring it to the Ft Wayne Nation Guard!!
