‘Rosie’s Riveters’ nose art dedication immortalizes legacy of 100th BG pilot with 100th ARW
The 100th Air Refueling Wing’s latest heritage nose art, “Rosie’s Riveters,” is officially unveiled during a ceremony at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England, June 10, 2021. The nose art, designed by Bruce Richardson, 100th Force Support Squadron Marketing visual information specialist, was dedicated to retired-Lt. Col. Robert “Rosie” Rosenthal, former 418th Bomb Squadron, 100th Bombardment Group pilot and aircraft commander during World War II. Rosie passed away in 2007 aged 89, but his son Dan and grandson Sam attended the dedication ceremony in his honor. The jet, tail number 58-0089, was also “adopted” by the 100th Maintenance Group as part of RAF Mildenhall’s “Adopt-a-Jet” program. (U.S. Air Force photo by Karen Abeyasekere)
