Trying to ID this ribbon.  I assume it is homefront and American and somehow related to aviation as I suspect that is the image of an airplane hidden by the stars that I really don't want to have to remove and then reinsert the stars  because that can be a real pain.  Thanks in advance.

wow. If you stay in place long enough, you see the same stuff. There was a query on this around 2011. I thought it was a Boeing production ribbon of some sort, but nobody knew exactly what it was.

I found an old post on the forum that shows these CAP ribbons. I don't see this one from the OP on the CAP webpage.

Living in the Seattle area, the Boeing hypothesis is certainly a possibility.  I tend to think the stars represent a certain amount of hours of work as I have seen similar adornments to other civilian employee ribbons of the era and this ribbon was in a box with some AAF civilian employee ribbons, but also with a whole lot of other unrelated items as well. The hidden stick figure images does appear to look like a twin-engine bomber. I will try to get a pic without the stars.

My bad, it looks like a four-engine and more appropriate to Boeing WWII era bombers.

Not CAP.Most of there ribbons with aircraft show a side view, not head on. The aircraft on your ribbon looks more like a B-29 with the tall tail.Below is a really nice CAP ribbon chart.
