Although I can not claim to have much of an interest in Aviation, unlike my partner, hence why I often find myself at places such as Duxford or the RAF Museum on a saturday, I do however have a strong appreciation of art. My favourite art movement being the Pop Art movement of the 1950’s. I recently noticed, during one of these museum visits that the art adorning many an airplane nose and or tail show more than a passing resemblance to pop art, cartoons and graffiti. This realisation has made the idea of future aircraft exhibitions a much easier pill to swallow and has increased my interest ten fold.
As I enjoy studying new subjects I have decided to research as much information regarding this topic as possible and have set up a Facebook page and group, both titled ‘Aircraft Nose Art’. As I discover further information I shall share it with you here along with pictures of said Art.
