For those that haven't read through to page 17 of the "Mosquito vs. B-17" thread...
I ran across this great sequence of LIFE magazine pictures of a B-17 being armed with bombs (1000 pounders)

LIFE photos on Google (http://images.google.com/hosted/life/l?q=b-17+source:life&prev=/images%3Fq%3Db-17%2Bsource:life%26gbv%3D2%26ndsp%3D21%26hl%3Dfr%2 6sa%3DN%26start%3D63&imgurl=bf430a166d697956#)

Be sure to hit the "More" link on the right side. There's a couple dozen pictures (at least) in this series!

Life magazine really had some great photographers back then. I have three issues of Life from the war years. The magazines size was huge back. All for 10c an issue.
