How planes are washed

These pictures show how planes are washed. Two more pictures after the jump.

Update: Willie says:

These airplanes are not really being washed, they are going through what is normally called a bird bath. It is used for military aircraft that fly over the ocean at low altitude. The wash-down is used to remove salt deposits that lead to corrosion on the aircraft. It is not a substitute for a traditional aircraft wash, a nice and dirty job.

Didn't know that! Thanks, Willie!
