‘Rosie’s Riveters’ nose art dedication immortalizes legacy of 100th BG pilot with 100th ARW
Dan Rosenthal, son of legendary World War II pilot Lt. Col. Robert “Rosie” Rosenthal, speaks at a nose art unveiling ceremony at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England, June 10, 2021. The nose art, “Rosie’s Riveters,” was named in honor of Dan’s father, who was assigned to the 418th Bomb Squadron, 100th Bombardment Group, from September 1943 to September 1944 at Thorpe Abbotts, Diss, England. The jet is being “adopted” by the 100th Maintenance Group as part of RAF Mildenhall’s “Adopt-a-Jet” program as a way to reconnect Airmen with 100th Bomb Group history.
