That must have been a boot full of rudder. . .

epic photo

An 88mm shell exploded between the right engine and the fuselage of Flossie's Fury on August 20, 1944, over Toulon, France. Of the eight crewmen aboard the B-26 Martin Marauder, miraculously, two survived (photo by S/Sgt. Peter Holmes courtesy of Charles O'Mahony).

It was taken by S/Sgt. Peter Holmes, who was flying his first mission as a combat photographer. But even more remarkable than the photograph is the story of one of the stricken plane's crew, George Moscovis, who was born and raised and is still living in Opelousas, Louisiana.

Why's that wheel down?

Most likely held up hydraulically, or it was until the right side hydraulics failed.
