It's the anthem for the movie everyone wants to hate so badly. (Spoiler: It's AWESOME.) This version is designed for if you want any other color except yellow. I have a version of this which is best for yellow tees. You've been warned.

The Normandy landings (codenamed Operation Neptune) were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and contributed to the Allied victory on the Western Front.

Another entry into the 'Aviation Pinup Series'... Featuring model Shalyah, the Army Air Force, and the famed 'fork-tailed devil'... the Lockheed P-38 Lightning! First built in 1939, this twin engined aircraft ran on basically two P-40 Allison Engines with turbo superchargers. This 37 foot long 52 foot wide fighter had a range of 1,300 miles and could achieve over 400mph. Standard P-38s carried one 20mm cannon and four .50 cal machine guns all in the nose of the aircraft. It could carry rockets, bombs, or drop tanks on the wings. It was a multi-role aircraft able to bomb targets, dive attack ground targets, provide photo reconnaissance, fight at night, and provide long range escort to bombers when fitted with drop tanks. The P-38 was the US Army Air Forces main escort fighter until the P-51 Mustang came into full service. Famous ace Major Richard Bong scored 40 kills in his P-38 Lightning during the war. Over 10,000 were built overall with the last P-38 being retired from the US Air Force in 1949. Other countries continued to operate the P-38 till 1965!

Another entry into the 'Aviation Pinup Series' featuring each branch of the US Military... featuring model Kayla, the Army Air Force, and the often overlooked bomber of WW2... the Consolidated B-24 Liberator! First flown in 1939, this four engine bomber was the most produced bomber and multi-engine aircraft in history with over 19,000 aircraft built... over 6,300 more than the B-17 Flying Fortress. The B-24 was used in many different roles ranging from a strategic bomber, electronic warfare, transports, martime patrol, and much more. Military brass tended to prefer the B-24 for its versatility over the B-17, however the crews preferred the B-17. The B-24 was rapidly retired from service following WW2 because of the more modern B-29 Superfortress bombers. The B-24J (as pictured in this pinup) carried a crew of 11 and could fly a max speed of 290mph with a range of 2,100 miles. It was loaded with 10 .50 Cal machine guns in different positions and had a retractable ball turret on the belly which would also be released it necessary. This pinup is part of a new 'simple' type of aviation pinup that I'll be doing more of in the coming months using Army Air Force, Navy, and Marine aircraft ranging from fighters to transports to bombers. Each will feature a pinup with an aircraft and the matching US insignia for that aircraft as we go through each branch of the service honoring the pilots and aircraft of WW2. The background will also be themed to the aircraft's color schemes during the war.
