Lady Be Good - 1990-91 Starboard Nose
This shot of the starboard nose clearly shows the scar where somebody carved out at least the word 'Good" of not the whole "Lady Be Good' phrase from the nose art. In the lower right of the frame you can still see the squadron number for the aircraft, '64' painted on the aircraft skin. Someone has tried to salvage that in the past looking at the way the Alclad 24S-T sheet has been pulled away. You can also just see how much sand has piled up into the section of the fuselage where the top turret is. I think the cockpit and nose section has been separated from the rest of the plane at some point after discovery - possibly by the same folk that dragged the tail several hundred feet away before the RAF 'reassembled' the pieces in 1968.
