    Why is it that the A-26s inspire the sexiest nose art?

    It took a while to dig it out from a few different sources but NL7079G is a 1946 A-26C. Looking at some of the other photos and the longer than military looking nose and tip tanks I believe that she was converted to an executive transport configuration by On Mark Engineering sometime in the 1960's or perhaps as late as into the 1970's...

    I’d guess because the artist has an larger than average canvas.
    Nothing against the A-26, but until just now I never really paid them much attention.
    All of a sudden I’d really like to fly one.

    A-26 pictures remind me of Duke Elegant, the great pilot and storyteller.
