I've always loved the "Nose Art" they printed on the old World War II bombers . . .
This is actually an extension of the bowsprits they used to put on the old sailing ships - topless women, mermaids, etc. . .
B-25 "Briefing Time"
Warriors seek talismans to bring them luck . . .
B-25 "Pacific Princess"
They seek Divine favor in battle, safe return home and a reminder of what awaits them there . . .
B-29 "Lucky Lady"
RCAF Bomber "Lady Orchid"
This tradition is as eternal as the Dawn of Time . . .
B-24 "American Beauty"
B-17 "Pistol Packin' Mama"
Enjoy . . .
