B-29A 'Superfortress' / "Jack's Hack"

Looking up at the access tunnel that leads to the rear compartments. This tunnel is approximately 3 feet in diameter and allows the crew to safely move about in the pressurized cabin while bypassing the bomb bay. At the top you can see the window where the Navigator could shoot the stars to get a rough positioning. Using this method took approximately 12 minutes and was used as a last resort.
