Photograph taken June 1944 Shown is the rear
pressurized compartment and door.
If you look you can see four bunks for the crew to rest during long-range missions.

The B-29 had front and rear compartments that
were pressurized, since the two areas were
seperated by the two huge bomb bays and were
connected by a 34 inch wide tube that was just large enough for a crewmen to crawl through.
The crewmen didn't really crawl he would lay on his back, supported by a creeper and pulled himself along the tube. The inside
atmosphere was 8,000 feet at 30,000 feet.


The fighters formed up with the bomber, the
fighter jock said he couldn't be a bomber pilot, just to slow, and did some barrel rolls the bomber pilot said good flying.
Watch this said the bomber pilot,after a few
minutes, the fighter jock said, I don't see anything the co-pilot said the captain left the flight deck, walked back to the galley made a sandwich and was having a cup of coffee...
