We took a ground tour of the B-17. It was really neat. We got to walk through it and all around it. My kiddos really enjoyed it and walked through it a couple of times! The ball turret was something else. A man climbed into it and was basically laying down with no room to move. He then operated the guns from this position located underneath the airplane. Talk about claustrophobia! Plus, it didn’t look like a very safe location. Being the tail gunner didn’t look too much better.
It was a very fun day and field trip!
We got to see the B-17, we went through the Liberal Air Museum, and I even snuck in a little shopping. Definitely a successful day. Plus, we got to see some beautiful, wide open spaces on our drive to Liberal and home again!
