Sperry Ball Turret: Only the tiny Brave.

Sperry Ball Turret: Only the tiny Braves.

Tight, claustrophobic, contrived, exposed, over enemy land,under fire….Not a place for the weak-minded or the tall.
Simple and to the point this nice cutaway.

    I never made B-24s after all, Sis. Thank goodness. Ended up on B-17s. I am in the top turret or upper turret gunner. It is one hot spot in action but would rather have it than the lower ball. It is a heck of a feeling to be in the ball, because it seems that you are suspended on nothing and it also gives a person a feeling of absolute loneliness. In very simple words it scares the hell out of me.
