The Fighter Escort . [. . . ] The Bombing Panel gives you full control over the bomb bay doors, bomb arming, auto pilot and the way the bombs are released (trail or salvo). Window Icon Window View (key W) The Bombardier has a clear view from the front of the aircraft through the plexi-glass dome. Note: Cheek Gun and the Chin Turret In the nose section there are also two extra (and key) gun positions. The Cheek gun is to the right side of the nose and is usually operated by the Navigator (where appropriate) and the Chin Turret sits under the plexiglass nose and is usually operated by the Bombardier (where appropriate).
The Engineer/Top Turret Gunner
Located just behind the flight deck in front of the Bomb Bay is the Engineer/Top Turret station. A good combat Engineer knows his aircraft, engines and armaments like the back of his hand. He is responsible for all equipment and therefore the lives of all the crew flying in the airplane. The Engineer also can regulate the flow of fuel between the four engines (for example, if one engine seizes up he can direct fuel to the other engines). He must also be an outstanding gunner.
Aircraft Icon External View (key F2) Jump to the external aircraft view. Crew Icon Compartment View (key C) The Engineer is only partially visible in the top left of the screen (it's easier to see when he's highlighted in this view). The Engineer's compartment view also allows a view of the bombs and if you're watching from here when they're dropped you'll see them drop off their mountings. Sight Icon Action View (key A) Selecting the Engineer's/Top Turret Action View will access full control of the Top Turret twin machine guns. Window Icon Window View (key W) Gunners do not have a separate window view.
Compartment Selection (pop-up menu)
When you are in any Compartment view (see above) you can easily jump to any of the other six B-17 compartment views.
Hover the mouse pointer at the bottom of the screen.
This will open the Compartment Selection pop-up menu showing an outline of the aircraft divided up into the six different compartments. · Click on the section you want, a red indicator light will confirm your selection and you will jump to that Compartment view. Click on a figure to select.
Section Four: The Training Schools
The Training Schools are here to give you detailed instruction on performing the basic functions for each of the ten man crew positions manually. Remember that, if you wish to let the AI control these functions the mission will still be carried out but it may not be as successful without your input. Or, if the realism settings are too high you may never get to the target!
An Introduction to the Basics of Flight
The only way to really be in control of your aircraft is to understand the forces acting on it and the way that the control surfaces manipulate those forces. There are five basic physical forces that are important to you when flying an aircraft that you must understand in order to be in full command of your aircraft.
Gravity Your airplane and everything in it are attracted to the surface of the Earth. If there were no other forces acting on your aircraft it would simply stay on the ground. The design of the wings uses a side effect of the law of conservation of energy. The shape of the wing makes the air move faster going over the top of the wing than it does going under the wing. Faster moving air has a lower pressure than the slower air and the difference in pressure between the bottom surface and the top surface of the wing lifts it up. When the lift force on both wings is high enough, the aircraft is held up in the air. [. . . ] The gunners remove the guns and begin to clean them, making them ready for collection by the ammunition crews. The pilot fills in form 1A to report any flight problems and damage sustained on the mission. A truck now appears to collect the flight crew and take them directly to the briefing room. Here, personal equipment is handed in (parachutes, flying suits, oxygen masks, `Mae Wests', etc) and the crew get something to eat. [. . . ]
