Up Close and Personal in a WWII B-17 Sperry Ball Turret

Thanks to Carl Rectenwald for passing along this great 2-min video of WWII B-17 and B-24 Ball Turret .50-cals firing at the Big Sandy Shoot in Stockton, California. Doesn’t the turret remind you of Star Wars? But the Millenium Falcon in Star Wars was inspired by another WWII bomber, the B-29.
