Re-creations of aircraft nose art from World War 2 was a highlight from the Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, Alberta.
I was there to see and photograph my friend Darin’s scale model trucks. I arrived during the judging and couldn’t shoot at that time. The aircraft and memorabilia were irresistible. The Flying Eagle of the 107th Squadron was one of my faves.
The ‘Ell Cat looked great and was on a partly restored airplane.
I thought that Gallopin’ Gerty was quite unusual and humorous. This one and the Flying Eagle were painted on actual metal body panels taken from vintage aircraft.
Have you taken steps to preserve the past?
In the best light…
