Hello! I'm trying to locate a nose art picture on a B-29 Bomber called the "Heavenly Body" aka the City of "Spanish Fork, UT". K-35 SN: 44-69997. It was with the 330th BG 458th BS. I have tried very hard to locate the nose art and still come up with nothing. I don't know where to look. Can anyone help me out? The aircraft was station on Guam from 1944-45. The A/C was Lt. Foster B. Huff.
Thanks for your time in this matter.

To Whom it May Concern,
I'm looking for information about who was the artist for the 458th BS 1944-1945.

I have been researching the 330th BG for several years and came up with a lot of information. Now, I was wondering where can I obtain more information about the 330th BG 458th BS?

Thank you,
