    Great pictures Steve

    I love looking at USAF nose art . Are there any definitive books on the subject ?

    Cheers

    Thanks Nick. I do have a couple of books at home showing period nose art and I think I have another buried somewhere which shows them in color. I'll get at least one of the titles for you and post it here.

    Hi Nick, I can recommend an older book called "Vintage Aircraft Nose Art" by Gary Valant. I have this book in my collection.

    There is a nice website on the subject here:

    USAAF Nose Art Research Project

    Cheers, Ade.

    Steve,
    Excellent pictures. There is nothing more impressive then the old "War Birds". Beautiful aircraft. Thanks.
