Hello all,

Not on the nose but a clever example of aircraft art nonetheless: A Bf 109 pilot's version of Mickey Mouse dancing to the music of Betty Boop!

Hello to all :D; something more about the German art ............................

In April 1943, the deployment of the group on the Eastern Front ended and it was moved to Trapani under Luftflotte 2. In May, it moved to Pomigliano and in June to Monte Corvino in the area of the II. Fliegerkorps.
