H.Levy - Anatomy of a Liberator
The waist gunner's position, showing the 0-50in machine-guns and oxygen bottles.
Looking forward, with the cockpit visible in the background, the upper turret at top and the wireless operator’s station at right.
The B-24’s engineer's position.
The spacious cockpit, with the three sets of four engine control levers within easy reach of both pilot and co-pilot.
Looking aft into the B-24's tail turret.
The bomb bay, with 500lb bombs. Note the walkway between the racks.
The belly turret took between 10 and 15 m.p.h. off the B-24’s speed and was the least desirable of crew positions.
The wireless operator’s position was fairly cramped.
