That's a good suggestion. He was crazy or wild....right? There we go..Why can't Canada do a movie about a hot shot pilot? Why? I tell. It would be so minimalist and ho hum that people would think Buzz was a bore. We are pretty good about making movies about Necrophiliacs though. Roger Ebert dug it

I don't have any pictures but what always blew me away was the technology inside the B-29's gunner stations. I mean it was 1944 and that thing had computer aided remote turrets! I watched a history channel documentary on it and thought that was so ahead of its time.

I think you'll find that B-29 turret 'computers' were analog devices (like for example the torpedo targeting 'computers' used in US submarines). Clever technology, but not computers in the modern sense.
