B-17 "Angel Babe" is returning from a perfect mission to Willemshaven as the Group Lead. Flight Engineer Willets explains that when "Angel Babe" leads they always come home safe. On the ground Major Stovall waits with a team from the Public Relations Office (PRO) who are filming & photographing the plane which has completed its 49th mission. They want to take the plane back to the US for a promotional tour as it will be the first in the Eight AF to complete 50 missions. The Flight Engineer, Technical Sergeant Willets thinks that "Angel Babe" is a fighter and she won't want to go home this way and it certainly seems that she doesn't.
