B-17G 44-85778 Miss Angela

B-17 Miss Angela (Palm Springs 04-12-18) 8003

Just a few pics of the B-17G 44-85778 Miss Angela from my personal archives documenting the B-17s I have had the good fortune to see in person. I had my face pressed to the window and watched the Palm Springs Air Museum pass by during an unexpected stop there (diverted from San Diego) and swore I’d be back as soon as I could. That chance came in 2018 when my son’s high school band was invited to perform at Disneyland. I ceased my chaperone duties when the group was ready to depart at LAX and in the following two days added four Fortresses — including Miss Angela — to my list of the B-17s I’ve seen.
