Remington Model 11 shotgun set up into special mount to emulate aircraft machine gun.

This setup was used by US Air Force during WW2 to train aircraft machine gunners on shooting at moving targets.

I saw a film of one of these in an old training video. Pretty ingenious way to train aerial gunnery!

There was no U.S. Air Force during WW-II. It was the Army Air Corp, Navy or Marine Aviation. The U.S. Air Force was formed in 1947 along with the Defense Department replacing the War Department.

I know, being in the USAF over 50 years ago - I was quoting the source (why it was in italics)..
