Camo art as nose art

One of the many things that fascinate me about the Second World War is aircraft nose art. In some ways I've lamented the jet age as nose art seemed to disappear from military aircraft. That's why I was gratified to see this creative piece of camo art on a Marine helicopter.

As I dug around the net after seeing that creative camo art, I found that nose art isn't quite dead and buried. Our military friends in the RAF continued the tradition as late as the Gulf War. Still, the salad days of nose art is long gone, but it is nice to see that a few Marines managed to keep it alive.
