Shot of interior of nose of plane, facing aft, taken from outside the front of the plane, through the small flap in the nose.

Picture 1 of 9.

Looking through the left-hand "V" of the "W" strut is the co-pilot's seat (some wires can be seen hanging down off of the control wheel). Similarly, in the right-hand "V" is the pilot's seat.

Note the bicycle-type chain just to the right of the right-hand "V"; this chain is visible looking forward under the pilot's seat.

The machine gun is in the upper right, and the bombsight is on the lower right. The bombsight is actually blacker than this picture shows; the camera's exposure setting lightened it up.
