While in the B-25 nose turret, my Leica's rangefinder wouldn't line up.  
My first thought: Oh, no!  Did I bump it out of alignment while going 
through the crawlway?  But no, I'd slid through the crawlway on my back 
with the camera safely on my stomach. Once I got out of the plane, all 
was well.  Then it hit me. Dummy, the turret glass is curved!

Leica M Monochrom, 35/2 Summicron IV,  and 6'3" (190 cm) photographer 
shoehorning himself into small spaces. Enjoy!
