Striking work!

I'm pretty sure the ventral (belly) turret's been destroyed by this point, since nothing's shooting back! I imagine the bomber captain's telling his crew to bail. Just be careful, as angry civilian mobs in Tokyo actually lynched downed bomber crews as revenge for children who were burned alive by incendiary bombs.

My thoughts exactly. I didn't believe it until I read the sad stories.

There was a tragic incident in Italy when a B-17 bombed a town on the very Monday after Easter, when the locals were having their Easter Festival. The bomber was shot down by Italian flak guns. The pilot and copilot, who managed to bail out in time, got stuck on buildings. The copilot, thinking the Italian Army would capture and torture him, yanked out his side-arm and shot the very first person who reached his landing site. Said person was a civilian fire-fighter. The townsfolk, enraged by this murderous act (along with the bombing), killed the copilot with farm tools. The bomber captain, having seen this, threw his pistol away and surrendered, begging the townsfolk for mercy.
