Homing De-Vice
B-29-50-BW 42-24785

500th Bomb Group, 882nd Bomb Squadron



Nose art painted by
Cpl Henry JOHNSON
500th Bomb Group, 882nd Bomb Squadron
Isley Field, Saipan

 

This nose art seems to be something of a departure from Henry Johnson's usual pin-up style. It shows a cartoon figure but we have no clear photo which reveals its full detail although the "Drowsy Swede" signature is legible. This B29 was initially designated as "Z-31" but was later changed to "Z-25". The aircraft was logged as Missing in Action on 23rd January 1945.


No mission listing is currently available for this aircraft
