Cool pictues.....thanks for sharing.
I wonder how long it'll take for the "politically correct" crowd starts screaming about nose art?

Yeah, I hear you. They just hate that "Bocks Car" aircraft becuse it dropped the 2nd A Bomb. I thought the babe nose art was tasteful myself though. It is a pretty neat museum. Lots of aircraft from all era's. I see you are from California. Have you ever been to that aircraft museum east of the Los Angeles area.? I think it may be March Air Reserve Base if my memory serves me right.

Yes it's March!
Haven't been to the museum yet. It's on my list. But in May 2007 my unit flew out of March for our 2 week ADT.
