    Wow! I am so glad you posted this excellent photo of Memphis Belle's plexiglass nose! This is one reference photo I desperately needed to see, as I can't find much at all on this particular plexiglass set up with the two .50 caliber machine guns sticking out of the top. The photos I have seen are just so poor and the detail is difficult to see. Does anyone know any good technical resources on the gun mounts for these nose guns?

    The G variant was pretty formidable with that Bendix chin turret, lol! They added that since the Luftwaffe pilots had gotten in the habit of attacking the bombers head on, if I recall. The chin turret was a nasty surprise for them, lol..

    These are the images of my favorite B-17 No. 44-6261 "Never Satisfied." I was lucky enough to interview 7 members of it's crew for my book From Foggia to Freedom and have become great friends with it's pilot. "Never Satisfied" was shot down on Friday, Oct. 13, 1944 over Hungary. Flak damage was sustained on the bomb run over Vienna, Austria.
