Nose Art Archive

With the cooperation of Clarence and others and a huge amount of work by Katelyn, the museum has created a database of information and photographs of all the RCAF, RAF, RNZAF, and RAAF nose art that we have been able to locate. The database contains over 2200 photos of nose art and nose artists and information related to more than 1250 different nose art images, over 800 of which were on RCAF and RAF Bomber Command aircraft. The database is a “work in progress”” that will eventually be shared with other museums and researchers, perhaps through the Internet in some manner.

We welcome questions regarding the collection or specific nose art images. If you have photos of nose art and/or related information that you would like to contribute to the collection please contact us.
