Operating Ball Turret in the Collings B-24J at Bomber Camp

Operating the Ball Turret

I had a vision in my head about putting a camera on the end of the 50 cal gun facing the ball turret so you could see the aircraft rotating in the background. Whitney, the crew chief on the B-24 and a great guy, installed his Gopro camera and captured exactly what I had in mind. Thank you Whitney!!

 

Thanks also to the Collings Foundation for making this possible. You can take a ride in the ball turret and a lot more at the Vintage Aircraft Bomber Camp next May in Stockton, California.
