"Mrs Aldaflak" Jacket

In a fine play of words, "Mrs Aldaflak" was the nickname chosen for their B-17 by a crew in the 615th Bomb Squadron, 401st Bomb Group. As a flight engineer, the donor flew 35 missions between July and November 1944. The artwork was applied by a squadron member who decorated many jackets.

The jacket was donated by Mr. Anthony E. Raciti, Kissimmee, Fla.
