    Maybe showing my ignorance here but isn't this type of nose art typically unique and to an individual plane?

    Either way, I love pin up nose art. This one included!

    Without a squadron patch on the front or the plane's name, the identification is likely lost to history.

    Sadly, this is true I'm afraid. On occasion you will find the aircrafts nose art on either the front or back of a flyer's jacket, and this particular example looks good to me. I have a small grouping of 8th air force items that I know came from a crew member of an air craft called "Insomnia" , but alas, I do not know what the art looked like! Same problem, just in reverse!! Leon.

    There are, however, several large collections both online and in books of nose art that are available out there for collectors and researchers to sift through. You just could get lucky and find what aircraft this twin-propped beauty belonged to!
