B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator Waist Gunner Flexible Mount


Recommended Posts

One of the most difficult WWII bomber aircrew jobs was the Waist Gunner’s.  He defended one side of the aircraft with a single 50 caliber Browning machinegun in a flexible mount.  Most of these gun mounts were scrapped with the planes at the end of the war. This example, a Bell Aircraft Corporation version, serial number T 18462, has been expertly restored by Dan Spears, a former Navy pilot. The pictures show Dan’s perfection and workmanship.  $6500 delivered.  Email sales@fullautoclassics.com or call (575) 405-0911.  Thank you.
