Photographer's Remark

This aircraft is on display as B-17G 42-107112 "Sleepy Time Gal". In reality, it is B-17G 44-83624, which was at Wright Patterson AFB for many years. The AMC Museum received this aircraft in the late 1980's from WPAFB in trade for B-17G 42-32076 "Shoo Shoo Baby", which had been restored by the AMC Museum.
