Boeing Factory B-17 Expeditor

Omeara worked in a number of positions while at Boeing, but most of her time was as an ‘expediter’ during the B-17 assembly process. Daniels made sure other workers had all the parts they needed to build the aircraft. During her employment at Boeing, she was instrumental in capturing two German spies who worked in that same Boeing factory.
