Editorial Reviews

"Boneyard Nose Art is much more than documentary, it is sincere recollection which shares with readers insights into the flight crews of a broad aircraft spectrum. Fighters, bomber and patrol aircraft, tankers and transports as well as helicopters and special use aircraft are addressed in hundreds of high-quality color photos...The gamut of human experience and emotion are described in the art of the aircraft slowly and surely returning to nature. Thanks to Veronico, Dunn and Strong for saving this performance art for us in this excellent book."
