Episode Summary

EDIT
Angel Babe
AIRED:
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. The PRO team will fly on the next mission, her last and some of her crew including Willets, Harkness and the two pilots think that "Angel Babe" is their lucky charm. The plane blows a tire and aborts the mission. When they land Willets hits Cameraman Staff Sergeant Ben Prinzi to keep him from going back in the plane, because of the live bombs. Major Budd the PRO feels that the crew is trying to sabotage the plane so the PRO will not take her back to US. The crew is tense, a gunner Harker wants to pop Prinzi. On the next mission to Willemshaven, "Angel Babe" starts buffeting and looses number 3 engine. They abort and return to base, the crew is now convinced that the plane has used up her luck. The next mission is to Emden and as the crew arrives, Prinzi refuses to board, then so does the whole crew. Gallagher arrives and decides that he will pilot "Angel Babe" while Drennan will act as co-pilot of "Piccadilly Lilly" under Captain Fowler.moreless

  • One of the best espisodes

    Right up there with the best of this series. Any show that has a touch of magic in it is special. Gallagher was my childhood hero and is perfect in this show. He has no time for superstition and the ending is perfect. Not having seen these shows in years I was afraid they may not have stood the test of time, I had nothing to worry about. They are as good as ever, just as I remembered them. This show was a change of pace from the serious normal tone and rates as one of my favorites in this shows much to short life.moreless
  • Memorable episode. Episode personalized a B-17 bomber that made the viewer consider the bomber as the 11th man of the crew; and, the one member of the crew empowering the rest of the crew to go forth.moreless

    The episo was so memorable, I named my first car and first boat 'Angel Babe'. By doing so, I felt that I had a co-pilot to help out. My wife and children grew up calling the first car by it's name Angel Babe. As indicated above, the episode was memorable. The episode personalized a B-17 bomber that made the viewer consider the bomber as the 11th man of the crew; and, the one member of the crew empowering the rest of the crew to go forth. This made the TV series that much more special and memorable to this day.moreless
