The tail gunner position in the Executive Sweet, a B-25B Mitchell bomber,



A view from the tail gunner position in the Executive Sweet, a B-25B Mitchell bomber, over the Verde Valley, west of Sedona, Arizona, coming into a landing from the Sedona Airport on March 30, 2013.
A view to starboard from the nose.



 Two passengers, one of whom was a WWII veteran pilot, the other a Vietnam veteran. A crew member in standing behind them. The plane is only a few feet wide.
