Webmaster's Note: The following picture shows a decal on the RF-8's of Castro holding a dead chicken.

Jeffrey D'Amico provides an explanation:
"I remember my father (John D'Amico see In Memoriam) telling my brother and me that the reason Chickens and Castro were painted on the side, was they represented the amount of times that a plane flew over Cuba for a mission. The story behind it being that at the time Castro was afraid of his food being poisoned and always requested fresh chickens for meat and eggs."
