Boeing Flying Fortress B- 17G 'Anxious Angel' LL-F 43-38035 LL-F 401st BS, 91 BG.

This was one of Starcer's rare nudes and it showed the high level of skill and paint manipulation that he achieved. The flesh tones are superb although the girl's legs are extraordinarily long. As with many of his nose art paintings, Starcer included his signature -- a useful aid, if one is needed, for historians.

"Anxious Angel" accrued over 70 combat missions, more than one third of them were flown by Dick Gibson's crew who named the plane and commissioned Starcer to paint its raunchy artwork. Towards the end of the war, the aircraft was fitted with radio counter measure equipment to confuse German ground radar which guided the flak gunners and fighters, no doubt causing many an anxious moment for plane and crew. Surviving hostilities, "Anxious Angel" was flown back to the USA on 8th June 1945 with a crew of ten plus ten passenger ground crew.
