McAllister Museum Exhibits Local Nose Art

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH.- The McAllister Museum of Aviation in Yakima has been invaded by "nose art." Local students, teachers and artists helped make 13 life-size nose art panels and the museum says there are more on the way.

Nose art gained popularity in World War I and has continued to be a way to boost soldier's morale over the year. Chuck Naasz said the museum is a way to remind people of soldiers and a way to bring awareness to the community. "It's set up as a gallery, with the nose art on the walls so that everyone can really see the kind of stuff soldiers did," he said.

The nose art exhibit honors two crewmen lost in the Vietnam War.
