B-24D "Yankee Doodle Dandy" 42-40077 nose art and mission scoreboard on the left side of the nose
The left side of the nose had the nickname "Yankee Doodle Dandy" in white with the nose art of a top hat with red and white stripes and stars above three falling bombs. The scoreboard on the left side of the nose had 78 bombs markings in two rows (58 in the top row and 20 in the lower row) indicating bombing missions flown, many had a star above the bomb. Between the two rows were seven aircraft silhouettes indicating Japanese aircraft claimed by gunners. Below the pilot's window was "Ellie" and below the first row of bombs was "Scottin". The rear left window was modified with a socket to mount a machine gun.
