A U.S. fighter jet is changing its color to hot pink, and it's all for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Grumman F9F8 Cougar is on display on the flight deck of the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, Texas.

But the hot pink paint job isn't permanent.  Dishwashing soap mixed with latex paint will allow the color to be removed when the month ends.
