From pin up girls to the Sunday comics WW II B-29 bombers had art work on the planes somewhere. There are only 22 bombers left now, just 1 can still fly.
The following photos are from reproductions or renovated planes.
All we needed was the Andrew sisters or Glenn Miller playing while we photographed these.
This old photo of ‘Raidin Maiden’ displays a good example of the quality of the art in the field at the time.
Each painting always included the number of bombing runs and operations the plane participated in.
The New England Air Museum has an incredible collection of this folk art, as well as one of the few remaining B-29’s.
