A friend of mine during my working years was a teen-age belly gunner in a B-24 crew flying over Europe. I've looked closely at that task, and find it amazingly confining, for long periods of time.

Tiny? My dad flew B-17's and when one was at a local field we went over and crawled around in it. The cockpit was tight but some of the gunners had to to be scrawny to fit in. No frills.Made a 2CV interior look plush.
