National Geographic : 1943 Jan
The National Geographic Magazine "Open Your Bomb Bays!" Calls the Squadron Leader over the Interplane Phones All six ships are tightening the formation, for they now are close to the target. Shortly, the bombs you can see through the opened bay will come whistling down to crash on fuel dumps, airplanes, and runways at Jap occupied Lae, New Guinea. The Flying Fortress is as destructive as she is beautiful. Forward and side guns poke wicked .50-caliber noses at Japs about to attack. Swinging in a turret, twin .50's guard the ship's belly. Bottom gunner in the photographer's plane never fired a shot. His oxygen failed, and he almost passed out (page 52).
