This photo was taken at the SAC Air & Space Museum near Ashland, NE. I jazzed it up a bit, as the plane sits inside a huge hangar with busy backgrounds and low lighting.
What caught my eye was the red warning sign, “Propeller”. My first thought was “Duh”, then I thought about its origin. I very much doubt it was placed there on the assembly line; no time for fancy decals during WW II. The plane is currently inoperable sitting in the museum; what would be the point? Hmm. So, when did warning signs begin appearing on propeller-driven planes?
Another government move (OSHA) to protect us from ourselves?
