Lancaster Fooship III



Lancaster Fooship III


The nose of a Lancaster with an airman working on the nose art. He is at the top of a stepladder. The art is of a man wearing a grass skirt, boots and a crown. Over his right shoulder he has an Australian flag and in his left hand he has a string of three heads and a bone. One of the heads is a caricature of Hitler. The aircraft has also been painted with two small boomerangs.
A secong image is taken from a different angle but is slightly blurred.
