Art: Idiot's Delight by Artist Laurie Justus Pace
From World War II one of the most recognizable symbols from the war were the paintings on the side of the planes. Each pilot chose what was painted on their plane. Nose Art is a well known subject attached to the 20th century airplane. It is no different than the banners from the medieval wars...each individual plane had it's own art painted on it's nose. Idiots' Delight (42-30301 XM * J) belonged to the 94th Bomb Group, 332nd Bomb Squadron and was the first in that group to survive 50 missions. She flew her first mission on July 14, 1943 to Le Bourget and her fiftieth mission on March 22, 1944 to Berlin. Camouflage is standard Olive Drab over Neutral Gray with Neutral Gray (instead of white) stars in the national insignia.
