German "Focke-Wulf Fw 190" Fighter

"One that got away. Sometimes I would take the waist guns (Two large openings, one on each side of the plane from which we had a fifty caliber gun) it was frequently the job of the waist gunner to take bomb strike photos for use at the critique following the raid. This camera was a large one that held a roll of film of which the negatives were five inches square and fifty of them to a roll. I shot that one from that position. We were not always engaging enemy fighters and had time for taking pictures."
