Looking inside the fuselage just aft of the bomb bay. Looking at the bulkhead (right), just aft of the bomb bay, one would think this plane was shot down by enemy fighters. It is a shame to see so much vandalism. An access panel on the rudder still has the original blue. The 90 of the serial number is barely visible, see below too.
Looking through the tail gunners crawl way. The aircraft has been subjected to quite a bit of graffiti, as an ironic twist some of the graffiti is old enough to be considered historic.
Looking down at the bomb bay doors. A main tire is still tucked up in the engine nacelle. The right wing was sheared off shortly after making contact with trees.
