When we started the Aircraft/Nose Art section on our web site, people always asked the next logical question: Was the nose art ever painted on an A-2 Jacket? What did it look like? Over the years we have collected a nice array of photographs depicting this artwork. We thought that is was about time we shared those photos with you. Many of these have come from private collections, Thorpe Abbotts Tower Museum, Veterans, Family Members and my own personal collection. I am sure there are many more examples out there and we would encourage you too send us a photo of your Painted A-2, B-3 or M-41 or M-43 field Jacket. Anything that contains artwork synonymous with the 100th BG and its aircraft, we would love to present here. Just send examples to us as JPEG's (300 bpi) to  me.   Email Mike Faley.  We hope you enjoy the images, and a big thanks to Cindy Goodman, our webmaster, for putting this section together.
