A tribute to the fighter pilots of WW2 and LIFE Magazine. LIFE covered the entire war, along with other publications like TIME, YANK, etc. LIFE, however, captured some of the most quintessential iconic photos of the war courtesy of photographers such as Robert Capa and Alfred Eisenstaedt.

A US Marines Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion from HMH-465 ‘Warhorses’ based at MCAS Miramar, California sits silently at Gillespie Airfield during the Wings over Gillespie Airshow at about 1am in the morning.  A long 30 second exposure with multiple hand-fired flash strobes will used to illuminate the CH-53 and ‘paint’ light on every surface.  Photo by Britt Dietz 

Today’s airbrushed style pinup photo features Kelsey and a little mouse! The only drawback for Kelsey living on the farm at the turn of the century was the occasional little friends she’d attract begging for food. Here, a little mouse has found it’s way inside and has startled Kelsey in the kitchen looking for some cheese. Now, where is that darn cat who never seems to do it’s job?

Today’s pinup is another in the Airbrushed Propaganda Pinup Poster series featuring Shauna in this call to join the U.S. Army Air Force! The Army Air Corps (USAAC) was founded in 1926 having been renamed from the US Air Service during World War 1. In the early 30s the Army Air Corps had about 1,600 aircraft in inventory with very early monoplane fighters. By 1941 with the threat of war on the horizon, that number had grown to over 6,000 aircraft. The AAC name lasted through the peacetime between the wars and into the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. It wasn’t until March of 1942 that the Army Air Corps was renamed to the Army Air Forces and became a fully structured arm of the US Army not only providing ground support but also independent operations.

Today’s airbrushed style pinup photo features Samantha in another of the ongoing WW2 Nose Art Pinup series! Calling on the classic Vargas style pinup that would often adorn nose of Fighters/Bombers or the backs of bomber jackets during World War 2. This particular WW2 Pinup Art represents the 20th Air Force with Samantha and the mighty Boeing B-29 Superfortress.  Nose Art and Jacket Art were often very colorful and not only represented the aircraft the person was assigned to, but also what squadron or overall group the person was with.

Today’s airbrushed style pinup photo features Kayla cooking for victory! With many different foods being rationed for the war, Kayla has turned to her trusty victory cook books which go through a variety of recipes using home grown foods and vegetables from her Victory Garden outside. Being partially self-sufficient helps her make the ration points go really far!
