  • Nose gunner

    Here is a photo from http://militaryhistoryofthe20thcentury.blogspot.com/that needs an answer. The blogger wants to know which type of plane this is just from a photo taken from the nose gunner's position. I think some one would have to be an airplane expert. I have no idea.

    Good luck trying to figure this one out.

      Definitely a Nordon Bombsight there.

      Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

          Photo ID B-25

          Thanks to both of you. I feel kind of foolish for never checking that site to ID the photo. I must have had a brain cramp. Sorry excuse but it is the truth.

              B-17, based on the Norden bombsight.

                Description
                Bombarider's view out front of a B-25 on low-level mission of Basic Multi-Engine School at Vance AFB, Enid OK in the summer of 1953.

                  B-25, obviously.


                  EDIT: crap, didn't notice the above posts - clicked this thread hours ago.
