    No B-17 expert here? Please someone help me...I´m in touch with a nephew of the tail gunner from this machine so it would be nice to show him this pic...
    Thanks!

    Hi seesul,

    From what I read in the B-17 erection and maintance manual this is a standard oxygen station. These stations where located through out the B-17. See picture below. Your set of gauges could come from any one of these locations.

    Many thanks Micdraw!

    you´re right I guess, oxygen station. Unfortunately there´s no chance to identify its position in the plane and so the former end user of this unit...

    Anyway, many thanks again!
