Special characteristics:
  • Nose Art
  • Unit Markings: 147 FW
Nose art in a very strange spot, located under the cockpit forward of the intake lip. Nose art faces straight down and only a bit can be seen from the side. It is a playing card, the ace of diamonds. The reason for this location is that the 111th FS were the 'Ace in the Hole'. The ace looks like it is coming out of the hole - aka intake.
