Airforce Unit: US B-17 Bomber Crewman World War Two
The United States Army Air force was made up of volunteers mostly in their late teens to early twenties from every part of the US. Bomber crews would receive extensive training at American air bases before being sent overseas for combat duty.
A B-17 would typically have a crew of 10 including: a pilot who was the flight commander, a co-pilot, a bombardier and a navigator, a radio operator, a flight engineer, two waist gunners, a tail gunner and a ball- turret gunner.
