Memphis Belle

If Memphis Belle was the first Eighth Air Force B-17 to complete 25 missions, was Morgan's crew also the first to complete 25 missions? And were they all flown in the Belle? Were there any individuals who had completed 25 missions prior to Morgan's crew?

Given that it took almost 10 months for someone to achieve that milestone no wonder such a fuss was made.

Anyone know the name and date of the second crew to achieve this milestone? And what was the name of the second B-17?
