Great photo.
I can imagine how nerve wrecking it must have been for those that operated the tail anti- aircraft guns during bombing missions while being attacked by fighter aircraft.

Nice pic. 4 P&W R1830's.

Ball turret gunner in the belly took a special person.

@jthyland:
Certainly not doubting you, but... Pratts? Was she re-engined?
Original Forts had Wright Cyclones (I'm sure you already knew that!)
Great shot of a beautiful aircraft !!!

Wow what a beautiful aircraft and a great photo. I got the great opportunity to watch these planes fire-bombing in SoCal. I am so glad that these airplanes are still up and flying these days.
