    you see, the B-17 was so ugly they had to paint things on the nose to try and make them look better

    Not at all! The B-17 crews merely had a sense of humor. The Lancaster crews were cowed into silence by the sheer ugliness of the plane they were flying

    the B-17 didn't NEED go faster stripes. It was plenty fast already.

    Mustangs did though, actually, didn't all Western Europe theater planes get those ugly black and white go faster stripes?

    The Navy and Marines on the other hand had planes that were good enough they didn't need them.

    I know that they try to get us to believe they were for identification, they were hoping we wouldn't find out their real purpose ;)
