People often forget that pilots have always had an artistic side. Since the very early days of aviation, many flyboys have taken it upon themselves to not just name their planes, but also detail them with personalized decorations. “Nose art” featured everything from shark-mouths and Mickey Mouse to pin-up girls or the names of special ladies back home. Pilots did this to instill a sense of identity and good luck that could color their lives during the darkest of times.
At Cockpit USA, we’ve designed a collection of aviation t-shirts that lets you fly your colors. Some of our aviation-themed t-shirts are directly inspired by nose art, while others are visual celebrations of all the branches of the USA’s military history and culture. Every aviation t-shirt in our inventory has been designed and manufactured right here in the United States using the highest-quality materials.
