Aware that [Senator George] McGovern had been at 22 a decorated Army Air Force pilot who had flown 35 combat missions (the maximum number allowed), I urged the McGovern managers to film a couple of members of the flight crew telling how terrified they were the day McGovern, with two of his plane's four engines knocked out, somehow managed through skill and strength an emergency landing of his B-24 (which required a 5,000 foot landing strip) on a 2,200 foot runway on an island in the Adriatic.

Speaking of double-entendre B-24 nose art, here's the famous The Dragon and His Tail. BTW, I think this is the last flyable B-24J in existence.

Oh Oh Oh! I don't need to even look! WWII voluptuous bomber art? The Liberator in action? The US of A saving El Mundo from the bad guys? Get real, this stuff has to rule! I've got some goosebumps going on! Oh yes, hell yes!
