cockpit of a He-111

A recoloured photo showing the view from cockpit of a He-111 over the English Channel, during the Battle of Britain, 1940.

The 111 initially had a traditional cockpit but this was replaced by the 'fishbowl' design as seen here. It was fairly quickly identified as a weak spot for Allied fighter pilots because a well aimed frontal burst could demobilize the pilot, navigator and bombardier - leaving the aircraft stricken and unoperational.
