Port nose view. Note the
pointed profile of the nose glazing so typical of the "F"
model and style of side glazing. Memphis Belle carries an
evidence of efforts taken in the field to beef up the forward
firepower of early Fortresses. The side windows and gun mounts
are non-standard and were applied during the aircraft's
service with 324th Bombardment Squadron, 91st Bombardment Group.
Together with twin guns in the plexiglass nose, the Belle had a
total of four forward-firing .5 calibre Brownings.
