Nose Art and Pin Ups is a documentary film which has interviews with USAAF veterans of WW2 talking about the nose art and pin ups they had on their aircraft including Delta Rebel 2, Our Gal Sal, Blondie and Turnip Termite.

We have put the film together with the help of the Eighth Air Force Historical Society who helped us find and film USAAF veterans who flew from British bases and had Nose Art on their bomber and fighter aircraft.

The film is available on DVD* via Amazon and Ebay. It hears from crews of the “Mighty Eighth” who talk about friends lost, battles won, capture and escape.

Sadly this summer Don Allen (above) nose art artist and crew chef  passed away this summer. He was with the Fourth Fighter Group based at RAF Debden in Essex in England.

Don was so helpful and genuine in his support for the film Nose Art and Pin Ups. The documentary could not have been made without him.

Here is a short clip of an interview with Don talking about his artwork and how it was copied by model makers all over the world. He will be missed.  Go to Nose Art Films on YouTube to see interviews with Don and other veterans.
