Nose Art

Begun for practical reasons for identifying friendly units, it evolved to express individualty that was often constrained by the military, and to evoke memories of home.

I enjoyed all the different designs of this "aircraft graffiti."

This one was my favorite. Love the donkey!

Even more modern planes can be painted with nose art. This one is just a little bit different than the rest though!

  1. Who paints those? The pilots? Or is there a little team of painters? Love them!
