In the early ages of the United States Air Force it was common practice to paint a scantily clad bombshell on the nose of a fighter plane. The Wikipedia article on the history of Nose Art is actually incredibly fascinating so if you have a moment give it a look. We pulled together this collection of the best vintage nose art we could find on the web, but just keep in mind some of this vintage art is not workplace friendly so scroll at your own risk.
