Nose art is a decorative painting or design on the fuselage of a military aircraft, usually located near the nose, and is a form of aircraft graffiti.
it’s not difficult to understand why a pilot would choose, or feel the need, to apply nose art to his or her aircraft prior to entering a warzone. after being stripped of your individuality and trained to follow commands for months on end it must be immensely refreshing to have the opportunity to personalize the machine with which you’ll spend most of your time, in turn boosting your own morale and that of your fellow pilots. add a lick of paint and title to a deadly lump of metal and the plane soon becomes a character with a unique name, not so much a weapon as a companion during one of the most stressful times imaginable.
