Male Call, created by Milt Caniff during WWII, was a popular comic strip featuring the fetching "Miss Lace," distributed exclusively to the armed forces. When the famous B-17G was received by the 447th Bomb Group in the summer of 1944, Armorer Nick Fingelly was granted permission by Caniff to paint his bomber with the iconic comic character and the "Bit O'Lace" was born. She flew 83 missions during her illustrious career, with several pilots, and retired without having aborted a single mission.
