For obvious reasons, I don't have this aircraft listed in the 765th Nose Art page.  I have yet to see a picture of it's nose in an undamaged condition.  I thought it would be good to at least post these pictures though.  The pilot at the time these pictures were taken was McMillen of the 765th Squadron.  According to documentation, McMillen ran out of fuel while returning from the mission on 20 January 1945.  Thanks to Stan Staples for these pictures.
