Love that catwalk thru the bombbay. I still have grooves in my hips from passing between the V-shaped struts. Most folks went thru it sideways
, but Altoid 'rendered that option inoperable'.'
It was fascinating to see this plane after having read some about it in WWII histories. By today's standards, its so very small!
There is a long crawl to get to the tailgunner position, but that was blocked to tourists, because there was no way to turn us around at the other end. Woulda taken forever to have people crawl up and back, one at a time, with half the trip crawling backward. We also couldnt see the hatch to the belly turret from the inside as it was lined with a catwalk for the tourists.
Even so, we could see plenty to understand why some places were dangerous, uncomfortable etc.
One heck of a piece of machinery!

Altoid - curiously strong.
