Heavenly Body Nose art
Heavenly Body full back Nose art.
Heavenly body is one of better known nose arts. There is B-29 called "Heavenly Body", as well as B-25 "Mitchell" and B-17, also found at least 2 original WWII era A2 jackets. Each one of them had a different variation of layout and pin-up girl.
This one on our jacket is true to the B-17 Nose art as well as to an original full back A2 painting. The B-17 was part of the 612 BS of the 401 BG. For information and History of the 401 Bombardment Group visit here
