Senior figures are said to be furious with the pictures which were taken on Friday, at the historic home of The Dambusters after a boozy party, The Sun reports. 
The aerial display plane is parked next a plaque marking the deaths of Flight Lieutenants Jon Egging and Sean Cunningham, who died in separate accidents in 2011.
Sgt Taylor's pictures showed all three men, all of 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, naked, except for regimental headdress. 
All three soldiers were boozed after they were given alcohol as thanks for their efforts at Lincolnshire's mobile testing sites, it is claimed

A source told The Sun: 'Tats put the pictures up on Facebook but took them down after, but it was too late, everyone had seen them. They know they’re in the s***.'   
It is claimed the three soldiers had been given alcohol as a token of appreciation by the local council after spending 10 days at the mobile Covid-19 testing site at the Lincolnshire base. 

A spokesman for the Army said the soldiers' behaviour 'clearly contradicts' the discipline expected of personnel

Friends of Sgt Taylor told The Sun he did not realise the significance of the plane.   
An Army spokesman said: 'This behaviour clearly contradicts the discipline we ask our personnel to display and it undermines the support we provide to health authorities with mobile testing and other tasks across the UK.
'We are looking into this incident and will deal with the matter accordingly.'
Flt Lt Cunningham died on November 8, 2011, when the ejection seat suddenly engaged while his Hawk T1 aircraft was still on the runway.
The Iraq veteran was hurled up to 300ft into the air before plunging to the ground at the RAF aerobatics team's base at RAF Scampton, near Lincoln.

The main parachute on the Mk 10 Martin Baker seat, which should have saved his life, failed to deploy and he suffered multiple injuries. 
Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging, 33, suffered an 'almost loss of consciousness' when he pulled six times the force of gravity as he broke formation at an air show near Bournemouth Airport. 
He was killed when his Hawk T1 aircraft came down and crashed into a field on August 20, 2011.
