Vintage Aircraft Nose Art is an unique collection of the American art that decorated military aircraft in World War II and the Korean War. This Nose art emulated the personalities of the air and ground crews and gave each aircraft the character and attitude it carried into battle. Painted by artists with a wide array of skill levels, the art commonly featured alluring women whose charms repudiated the deadly cargo the crew anticipated delivering to its target. The aluminum Nose Art Panels had images painted on them such as pin-up beauties, popular cartoon characters, wives and sweethearts. The titles given to the nose art panels were very clever plays on words such as Mission Belle, Miss Bee Haven. The playful artwork and creative names captured their hazardous wartime duties.
