Judging by some of the repaints I've downloaded over the years I'd say some military branches get quite creative with their commemoritive paintschemes. This is sure a beautiful example.

I'd like to see some do this one for Piglet's Hind.

Sebastian Hecker did just that! Look for 'eagle-mi.zip' at Flightsim.com.
