B-26B "VI-RA-TE"
Unit: unknown
Serial: unknown

During the training of Cuban B-26-crews in Nicaragua 1960-1961, several aircraft have got a sort of a 'nose-art'. The 'VI-RA-TE' was the 'personal mount' of Capt. Raul Vianello, and the name was a combination of the first two letters of his wife, son, and daughter.
