The Spirit Of Boyle Heights

Introducing the American B-17 Bomber named "SPIRIT OF BOYLE HEIGHTS". Two aircraft were purchased by the Jewish community, including the "SPIRIT OF CITY TERRACE" to help the war effort during World War II. Just a lil'bit of history for ya...


  1. Very few people in City Terrace knew anything about a B-17 named for our neighborhood. My family lived in both neighborhoods back in the 1960s. Just by chance, Are ther any photos of the Spirit of City Terrace ???. Thank You. SSgt.Jose G. Moreno, USAF Ret.
