B17 / b17g-16

Looking down and aft at the bomb bay from just behind the pilot and copilot area. The 2 large V shaped pieces are the bomb racks on  which the bombs were hung. The narrow piece of structure between them is the walkway used to get to the back of the plane. The bomb bay doors are open and the grey tarmac is visible just beneath the airplane. Overall I found the bomb bay area to be quite small compared to the overall size of the entire airplane.
