The Aluminum Overcast In The Air (part 2)

Photos of the waist gunner's machine gun.

Gun barrel and port.

Close-up of gun port and the cartridge belt.

I always thought these guns were just point and shoot but in this photo you can see the metal box installed behind the gun grip. I love the wooden cartridge belt holder on the wall to the right of the gun.

Close-up of box with the gun site on top and the various gauges and knobs used to fire the gun accurately.

Close-up of opposite gun showing the rest of the knobs on the box.
