After 49 successful missions, Angel Babe is the Grande Damme of the 918th bomber fleet, and to some like her flight engineer, Sgt. Willets, she even seems to have a soul (and mind) of her own. Her endurance has earned her the label of good-luck charm to the men of the Group. Upon completion of her 50th mission, the Army has decided to retire her from active service and return her to the States for a life of leisure as a recruiting icon. But Angel Babe seems to have other ideas, as she suddenly develops a multitude of mechanical ailments that thwart that final-mission goal. Not only does this strange turn of events recast her as an albatross, it also casts a shadow of suspicion over Willets due to his insistence that she's not ready to withdraw from combat.

Did You Know?


When Gallagher puts the Angel Babe into a steep dive, the scene cuts to the waist gunners hanging on to keep from sliding into the bulkhead of the plane. However the scene shows them oriented as if the plane is in a steep bank (side to side) rather than a steep dive (front to back) See more »

Star Trek - Original Soundtrack Snippets?
11 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the close of the episode "Angel Babe" a few snippets of music stood out.

They virtually duplicated note for note, segments of the music used in the original Star Trek episodes, including a few items that seemed to be shared with the opening theme song of Star Trek.

It was just a handful of measures at a time...but interesting none the less.

I wonder if there are other examples in this era of TV shows. I recall some shows shared props...so why not a bit of the already written music from time to time? Both shows aired in the same time-frame.
