The Commanding Officer of this forward AAF bomber base has decided to try and give the boys, who had been suffering somewhat high losses, a nice pick-me-up upon the return of their next mission. When Melissa came to the base as part of the travelling USO tour, he had a great idea of having her cheer the boys as they returned. He said she could pick whatever outfit she'd like and gave her a Jeep to set out on the airfield... he didn't expect the bomber crews nearly crashing into eachother's aircraft upon spotting her!
Celebrating the golden age of pinups during the 1940s, these classic pinups have been carefully shot and finished to mimic the classic style made famous by artists such as George Petty and Alberto Vargas. Fun and often downright goofy, these pinups portray the girl next door and her adventures through the 1940s. Prints in many different sizes are available!
