- DescriptionNaval Aviation special markings and 'se art' is a field that has been largely igred, primarily due to the lack of coverage in mainstream aviation history publications. Research into archives, feedback from veterans, and personal photographs by the authors have documented thousands of previously unkwn individual aircraft with these markings. The book covers markings on US Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard aircraft over the 100 year history of US Naval Aviation. The book includes illustrations of special markings and se art on early canvas covered airplanes through the World War II era when se art flourished and on into the jet age, the Korean and Viet Nam conflicts and up to the present war on terror with aircraft marked to commemorate the 9-11 attack. This coverage includes the fighters and attack aircraft of the carrier navy and the patrol aircraft, transports, blimps, research and test aircraft and helicopters. Markings include personal se art and pin-ups, shark mouth and similar markings, cartoons depicting special missions, Christmas and similar markings, and tributes.
