B17H in Aleutians 1945

Please do you know the designation of the USAAF unit operating B17H for rescue in the Aleutians in 1945 ?

Thank you

Alain

Alain,


Scroll down to picture 21 on this website: http://www.hlswilliwaw.com/dev/shemy...ook-suarez.htm


Another (or the other?) B-17H at Shemya reportedly called "Angel of Mercy"
