*if* the bar position was to rear, then the barrel would be pushed aft by the wind.

3. The DG radio antenna, the reddish object just in front of top gunner, is completely wrong shape.
1. I do recall seeing pictures with a gun mounted on that location.

2. Apart from the gun swinging back because of the wind I don't see a problem or an error there. The gunner might still be alive... Actually:

Screen 1 - pilot dead, bombardier dying. Top and waist gunners alive.
I suggest that you look at picture no. 3 where the gunner is dead.

3. I'll leave that for someone else to reply.
