Aviation Nose Art: “From Sirens to Sea Monsters”
Jerri Bergen

on June 7th at 6:00 PM
Potluck Dinner: The McGowan’s Hangar

Nose Art
Jerri Bergen, owner of Victory Girl, an aviation art services company, will present an informative and entertaining presentation titled ‘Aircraft Nose Art: From Sea Monsters to Sirens and Back Again’.
Jerri Bergen and her company ‘Victory Girl’ at Cable Airport in Upland, CA, have designed and/or painted
hundreds of nose art pieces on leather flight jackets, aircraft, RC models, hangar walls, and even bathroom tiles!

This slide show presentation takes a historic view of aircraft nose art, its origins in WWI, the heyday of nose art in WWII, and how the art form is faring today. Jerri has designed nose art for many commercial, military and general aviation aircraft – all of which have a story behind them. Jerri and her husband Chris, both AAHS members, own several aircraft, including a 1966 Mooney M20C, a Marine OY-1, and a 1941 Porterfield.

Jerri enjoys the history and stories behind aircraft nose art, and is pleased to present some of these stories for your enjoyment. See the Victory Girl website at for more information.
