A Girl Riveting Machine Operator At The Douglas Aircraft Company Plant Joins

Palmer, Alfred T.,, photographer.

A girl riveting machine operator at the Douglas Aircraft Company plant joins sections of wing ribs to reinforce the inner wing assemblies of B-17F heavy bombers, Long Beach, Calif.

It is a long range, high altitude, heavy bomber, with a crew of seven to nine men -- and with armament sufficient to defend itself on daylight missions
