1⁄1B-24J Inside & Out
The Collings Foundation B-24JThe Collings Foundation keeps a B-24J airworthy and tours the country, educating the public and honoring the veterans. This walkaround / climbthrough revels detail few have seen.
I will let the pictures speak their 1,000s of words. A few notable items are:
- Many "interior greens", including the Dark Bronze Green used by Consolidated Aircraft.
Airframe festooned with raised rivets
"Unrealistic" gaps between the empennage and fuselage
"Unrealistic" gaps between the nacelles and wings
Metal tube ammo guide tracks to the tail turret
A relief tube hanging from a bulkhead between the waist guns and tail
Oxidization of even the modern exterior paint
Colors of the turbo-supercharger and exhaust
Hamilton Standard Propeller decal
