WWII Nose Art (A little visual comfort)

nose-art-1

I find the ‘nose art’ to be an interesting mix of different energies: war, bombs, machine gunners, artists, sex, machismo, political correctness, linking sex to vanquishing (killing). The art runs the gamut from the amateur to the very sophisticated air brushing. I am no expert, I just find it interesting and how it has evolved. We worry about a bad image on our planes, an odd concern given the intent, the risks, the purpose.
