There is a book, "The Wars of Myron King - A B-17 pilot faces WWII and US-Soviet Intrigue" which says the bomber he flew in was called Yankee Doodle II.
Then there is this link, which puts it in the 97th BG. http://forum.armyairforces.com/B17-quotYankee-Doodle-IIquot-m120762.aspx
(Note: I don't think this is same as the surviving "Yankee Doodle II" at Barksdale.
I also found that Gen Eaker flew his first raid with the 97th on August 17, 1942 in B-17E 41-9023 "Yankee Doodle".)
