Recently I noticed a B-17 flying around. Googled. Found out they would be giving rides the next day. Well, an argument could be made that I have just a whole bunch of things $430 could be better spent on but what the heck. So I went for a ride on the "Liberty Belle". What a hoot. Now I am your average WWII buff, a pilot, all that, and would like to think I know a little something about warbirds but I have never seen the control shown here in this photo for what I assume was a method for the bombardier to control the A/C on a bomb run. I guess I always assumed that was done by moving dials on the bombsite.
