The right side cowl was often reserved for the ground crew to add their pride to the aircraft.  Sgt Mohn choose "Fearless Dick" for Richard Kik's plane.  Kik often attacked targets relentlessly with disregard to anti-aircraft fire.  In one 395th FS narrative is wrote "Lt Kik refuses to come back with any ammo”
