During flight we were allowed to walk around. The plane flys very sedately, and the radio operators canopy was open as you will see...

In the background you can see the South Shore of Massachusetts - Hingham and Cohasset down to Marshfield and Duxbury.

The first guy you see in the video going through the bomb bay catwalk flew 50 missions in WWII as a tail gunner. The B17 tail gunner life expectancy was about 26 seconds once planes started attacking from the rear. If you lived through the attack, the clock was re-set each time a plane attacked from the rear...and that was the favorite place for enemy pilots to attack...

Those guys had unbelievable courage.
