B-17E with front turret !!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Boeing B-17E Flying Fortress 41-9112 The Dreamboat nose.......

For anyone who wants to modify their 17E to incorporate this turret. Done a lot of research on the B17 and 8th over the years but never seen this picture before. All pictures are for discussions only.............

What an ugly bird  . . . .

Seems that the improvements were justified but strangely never implemented  . . .
