How to ditch your bomber

Here's a link to hyperscale.com.

A thread that contains copies of

illustrations about ditching Bombers.

Not sure if this inspired confidence

amongst the crews but at least someone

must have thought about it.



I thought someone on here might enjoy seeing these.

I think this video was also linked in the discussion on Hyperscale but if you haven't seen it it's worth watching: ditching a B-24. Really illustrates what a violent process it is

I was told that B-24 aircraft carried "ditching beams" tthe crew could mount in the bomb bay to strengthen that area before ditching.  Anyone else heard of this?
