Going through my various photos, I came across 3 various photos of the same B-29, Lady Mary Anna, from the 874th Bomb Squadron, 498th Bomb Group.  What's cool, I thought, is that they are almost all at the same angle, getting a great shot of the nose art.....but looking closely, you can see the mission total keep growing!

Great pictures. It's great to have three different pictures showing the progression. Nose art is super. Dave

Here is "Patches" a B-29 with the 875th Bomb Squadron of the 498th. The first photo was taken after 7th mission, the second after it added 14 more missions. I believe the cross in place of the bomb is for a Super Dumbo mission but that is a guess. The aircraft survived the war after flying 48 missions. Enjoy,

Mark
