Looking for more

 

I enjoy history. I particularly like the bits often left out of the classroom. In tonight’s news, mention was made of a teen in Denmark. He was doing a project for a class, using a metal detector, and found a crashed WW2 airplane with the pilot’s skeleton still inside! What a wonderful find for this young man to experience.

As I was perusing a pic to go with this story, I found nose art. When I worked at an Air Museum, planes with nose art was very popular. The first bird, the P38, is from the Air Museum where I worked. The second photo is by an anonymous photographer (the first one belongs to the Tillamook Air Museum) and much racier than anything we had in our hanger!!! Fun stuff,  history!
