There's some text on this captured Polikarpov I-16 before it's all white testing paint scheme; would be interested in what it says, if at all possible to make out.

And for those interested; it's all white paint scheme

Here are two captured Good Luck Flags from my Great Uncle's old photos.
His service his largely a mystery to me, and I didn't even know he served in the Pacific until finding these.
I was curious if what they say can be made out, as well as if what Island he's on can be guessed at by any of the text.

There are only slogans and person names on good luck flags. No unit name on them. So, it is impossible to know where it was captured.
