Boeing B-17G being salvaged for parts

Here we see a Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress being salvaged for parts. The type can be identified by the combination of the chin turret and the position of the waist gun position close to the ball turret. Large chunks of the aircraft have already done, most obviously the bulk of the tail.
