Here he poses with his turret top, an obviously close call with flak from his 30th combat mission in the ETO over Muenster, Germany.  Ben went to the Pacific Theatre of Operations after his ETO tour and racked up 28 more combat missions over Japanese targets as a tail gunner in the B-29 Super Fortress "Honorable Sad Saki", which was named in his honor by his pilot, Jim Jenkins.  Check out a documentary film about him to be released on PBS on Sep 17th, 2007, "Most Honorable Son."  http://www.pbs.org/mosthonorableson/
This is not a Japanese fighter pilot.  He's Ben Kuroki, the only Japanese "Nisei" ("second generation") who was allowed to fly with the U.S. Army Air Corps over Europe AND Japan during WWII.  He was born an American citizen in Hershey, Nebraska.  He's standing next to the nose of the second B-24 in which he flew as a top turret gunner, the "Tupelo Lass".  He flew 30 combat missions over Europe and North Africa, including the famous raid over Hitler's oil refineries at Ploesti, Romania, and then he was transferred to the Pacific Theatre, where he flew 28 more combat missions over Japan as a tail gunner in the B-29 "Honorable Sad Saki."  Ben is still alive and well at 90 years old.  Check out a documentary film about him to be released on PBS on Sep 17th, 2007, "Most Honorable Son."  http://www.pbs.org/mosthonorableson/
