"The April 18th Project" - (post #4)

The story behind this art just gets cooler by the day.

Go ahead and read the Press Release (here).

But don't think for a second that this is simply about flying a bomber across South Dakota.

It gets waaaay better.

Oh.  And about the nose art, Dick Cole (sole surviving Doolittle Raider) said that any artwork done on the Raider's B-25s was done with chalk and washed off during the rainy gale on 18 April, 1942.   We'll never know for certain about the nose art on #15.

But what's life without mystery, eh?

More to come...
