World War II Bomber Aircraft Nose Art
Crewman of a World War II bomber proudly points to the nose art on his aircraft. Aircrews decorated their planes with pictures of pinups and pretty girls, typically modelled after the "cheesecake" art of Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargas , and George Petty. It was (and still is) an interesting practice. Some see a deep, psychological impluse for attaching a talisman or a good-luck charm to the aircraft as a way of warding off evil, death, and bullets.  Or maybe the young guys just liked looking at the pictures of pin-ups.
