Ruger,this was what I was struggling to remember today.

“The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner”
From my mother’s sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in it’s belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
Randall Jarrel (1914-1965)
Here’s info on the YB40 we talked about. Not operationally successful but interesting.
