Sexy Witches in Nose Art
‘Nose Art’ is the artwork that is used to decorate combat aircraft. The Golden Age of nose art was during World War II and the Korean War, when the pin-up reigned supreme. A number of books have been written on the subject, and many sites exist which archive contemporary photos of the planes (see links below). Here are a few of examples of ‘sexy witch’ nose art.
