Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
Walk Through page 3

Looking through the door of the radio compartment at the waist gunners area. The ball turret was also in this section.

Here is a shot looking from the rear of this compartment forward.

Here is a piece of rasio gear in this compartment. The yellow bottle is the oxygen bottle for the ball turret and the wooden box is for ammunition for the waist gunner.

Below are a few shots of the waist gunner's .50 caliber machine guns and the ammo boxes.

In the next shot, the tail section has been cordoned off with a tarp. Behind that would be the tail wheel and tail gunner's compartment.

Here is the auxiliary power unit.

The next three shots are looking from the rear of the waist compartment toward the tail. In the last shot, you can see the back of the twin .50 caliber machine guns and the wooden ammo boxes.

The next 2 shots are looking into the tail gunners position from outside the aircraft.
