    Nothing was as cool as the old WWII nose art. I wish planes still carried classic nose art like these.

    “Bathless” was my grandfather’s B-24 through the end of WWII. It was named “Bathless” because he and the surviving members of his crew floated in the Pacific for days after their previous Lib went down returning from a joint Navy/USSAF mission to photo recon Saipan prior to the Battle of Saipan.
