The “Skipper III” nose art was designed and drawn by Gary Rogers, the 100th ARW Public Affairs graphic artist, as a way of reconnecting with the 100th Bombardment Group history. Tail number 59-1470 took on the name “Skipper III” as a tribute to retired Master Sgt. Dewey Christopher, former 351st Bomb Squadron crew chief and veteran of the 100th BG and World War II. The plane was also “adopted” by the 100th Mission Support Group as part of RAF Mildenhall’s “Adopt-a-Jet” program. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Gary Rogers)
