The big band "Airmen of Note," with Jimmy Stewart and singer Frances Langford in the center, recreate a hangar concert (complete with B-17) in England during the filming of The Glenn Miller Story. Such concerts were popular at scores of USAAF bases throughout Britain. Frances Langford was one of the war's most popular songstresses, touring heavily with Bob Hope's USO Shows in both Europe and the Pacific.
