Superb portrait of the busiest member in a B-47 crew: the bombardier/navigator.
Placed right in the nose, his working station was a real ergonomic nightmare. At the foreground the characteristic A-1 bombing tracking computer control handle and at the right the T-2 optic horizontal periscopic bomb sight.
Our hero wears the usual no-nonsense SAC headgear: a P-4 type helmet and a MS22001 oxygen mask.
A hopeless B-47’s lover here.
