'Locksted' in front of Cheyenne tail turret of B-17G

'Locksted' standing in front of a Cheyenne Tail Turret on a B-17G Flying Fortress. This was a significant improvement on the earlier tail turret, giving the guns a greater range of elevation, and providing the gunner with much larger windows and a more advanced gun sight.
