    Wednesday Coffee Wednesday

    More of the same. Work, work work

    I started reading the book Unbroken. It was a movie. About this Olympic runner who becomes a B24 bombardier in WW2 in the Pacific and gets captured by the Japanese. A lot of those B24 crews did not survive. Many were lost in training crashes alone. A lot of times on bombing missions they had to limp home all shot up and flying on fumes.

    Found a pic of a B24



    The guns are 50 caliber. Front, belly and top turrets. They also have what they called "waist" s who shoot out the open panels on the sides.

    I noticed some of the early versions of the B24 didn't have the belly turret so maybe that came along later. Also, although we can't see it in the pic there is a tail .

    A great white shark off the coast of Cape Cod just tried to eat a scientist by leaping up at him.
