Hiller Hangar Talk - "Evolution of the B-17 Tail Guns: Cheyenne Turret Restoration" with Nick Veronico
To improve its survivability in aerial combat, the B-17 Flying Fortress' armament evolved with each model – from no tail guns in the B-17C/D to the B-17E/F's "Steeplechase" turret, to the B-17G's "Cheyenne turret." Nicholas A. Veronico will discuss the evolution of the B-17's tail armament as well as his 30-year quest to restore a Cheyenne turret to original condition in honor of a family member who was shot down prior to D-Day in the B-17G Decatur Deb.
