    Hi there
    When it comes to retaining military colour schemes, when an aircraft has been sold outside it's State of operation, it is customary for the new owner, if it's a civilian, to write and ask permission of the former military operator, to allow the old colour scheme to be kept in place, as a courtesy. Some countries prefer if their old identities are removed when an aircraft is sold, in some cases to the extent that they deliberately obscure painted registrations and remove serial number plates(which can cause no end of fun for the importer) before sale. The DoD has refused in the past and also has a long history of rendering aircraft unfit for flight before sale or only allowing them to be sold as scrap.
