We’ve all been watching movies and playing games featuring fighter aircrafts. But have you ever wondered how it would be to pilot a bomber? Now you can check it for yourself.
In B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th you not only can pilot one of the most powerful and deadliest machines of World War II, but you can become any of the ten crew members of the bomber. Check your skills as a pilot, navigator, gunner, bombardier or even radio operator. You have the total control over the massive bomber and it’s up to you to manage your crew, reposition members to cope with wounded aircrew, or take the turret or the rudder in your hands. To accomplish the dangerous bombing missions you’ll have to prove yourself in every crew position and bring your boys safely home. And while we’re at the assignments, there are 25 realistic missions based on historically accurate scenarios and targets. If you want to take a break from the massive bombers, you can also fly a variety of escort fighters or even square off against the Flying Fortress as a German Luftwaffe pilot. With the great visuals, realistic sounds, terrific flight and damage modeling you’ll see what it was like to be a part of 10-man crew, and only for $5.99
