Nose Art Due by Midnight July 30, 2023


Nose Art originally began by way of identifying friendly aircraft during combat. Nose Art grew to become a form of folk art, showing comradery within crews and air units.

Mission Quest is conducting the 2nd Annual Airplane Nose Art Contest. Three winners will be chosen! The winning nose art will be affixed to one of the Mission Quest simulators and the winners will be invited, along with a friend, to receive a 2-hour joint orientation and simulator flight. All entries are due by July 31, with winners announced on National Aviation Day, Aug 19, 2023.
