OK Bruno - I finally waited for the picture to come up and it is a beautiful picture of the B-17 F series. I flew coastal anti-sub missions off the west coast of US and in the Battle of Midway as a Ball Turret and Tail Gunner in the B-17-E Series. They didn't make very many E Series, more F Series and G Series (with a nose turret) were used in Europe. Since this is an F Series, it was probably flown early in the air war and was disabled or taken out of service for some other reason because we lost all E's and most F's early on. The G was the workhorse of the 8th Air Force in the latter part of the airwar on Europe. While I have a number of books on the B-17, I have not been able to find a book that was written by someone specifically on B-17 Noseart. Yes indeed, I would llike to have the pictures. My email is winner1@bellsouth.net. We had considered painting "Belle" on our 345 before we put her on the market for sale. I enjoyed seeing the P-40 Noseart (Taken from the China Volunteer Group) on the photo shown previously here. There is an 8th Air Force Museum in Savannah, Georgia that has a good collection of Noseart pictures also.,,
Regards, Dr Joe
