Mason & Dixon

MASON AND DIXON
B-17G 42-31412 351st Squadron
This was a long-serving Fort which was named after two 100BG officers -- pilot Floyd Mason and navigator William Dishion. The racy semi-nude painted by Stevens made clever use of the scripted titling to avoid censorship by higher authorities. The plane was severely damaged while on a shuttle mission from England to Russia to Italy in September 1944. A flak shell sliced through the wing and narrowly missed a fuel tank. Name-sake Capt Mason had been shot down in another aircraft in late July 1944 but "Mason and Dixon" returned to fly many more combat missions well into 1945.

Patrick N. Kennedy (91st Bomb Group)
The Saga of Bachelors Bride began at Ardmore, Oklahoma the last part of 1943. Howard (Robbie) Robertson was a pilot and instructor there and I was a Bombardier instructor. He was assigned to take a crew to England that had just completed Phase Training and my request to go with him was granted.
This is all by the way a preface on how a painting of a beautiful lady came to grace the nose of a B-17G. The crew wanted to call the new plane bachelors pride. The crew also decided they would like a pin-up girl on the nose. A painting done by my sister, Margaret Hays, of a nude redhead on a billowy white cloud, struck their fancy and that was it. The name did not fit the pin-up so some bright crew member said lets' call her Bachelors Bride, an oxymoron if there ever was one. We should have named her lucky Bride, instead we came to call her Bride, because in our way of thinking we were married to her. At any rate the pin-up went into Starcers' paint shop and he painted a copy of it on the nose of LG-C.
Credit must be given to the crew who flew it on its last mission. They performed in the best tradition on the 91st. It was unfortunate that some of the crew were severely injured on their forced landing. I feel a special bond with them and am thankful they survived. The bride served them well.
