View from the front port side hatch to the nose turret, under the cockpit. The nose section of the B-17 provides a compartment for the navigator and the bombardier. The seat directly ahead was for the bambardier. The bomb sight was directly in front of him. The bicycle-type handlebars to the right were pulled down to the center by the bombardier and were used to control the chin turret guns. The navigators table was to the left in this picture. The 50 calibre guns on each side were to be operated by the Navigator.
The navigator's compartment has been re-arranged in the B-17G (from the B-17F). A larger table and a swivel chair are installed. The flux gate compass and the radio compass have been relocated more conveniently on the bulkhead wall.
A shelf has been installed over the navigator's table.
A step has been added under the astrodome to facilitate the navigator's work in taking celestial shots.
