Okay, everyone. You've been drafted, you've been through basic training, and now you're in England. Your crew assignments are posted below. If you volunteered for duty, please check to be sure your name is on here. If not, let me know ASAP.

If you're not on here and didn't volunteer, but would like to join a crew, let me know and I can add you to the replacement crew list.

Pilots, please note: tradition dictates that you name your aircraft. Please submit a name in the next 24 hours. (I've got a bookmark to a website of real B-17 names, but of course it's down right now.)

Crew assignments were made according to post count, with the most posts equating to the highest position on the plane. Your crew was therefore determined by simply working down the list of posters (with some additions at the end for those who volunteered for service), so it's more or less random. No complaining about who you have to sit next to.

Well if i stay with the crew as is a few things will happen...

1)We will go out get killed and nobody will miss us.

2) We will go bomb our way to victory and nobody will care.

3)As I stated earlier we will will lose the war but come back with a huge wrestling belt on our plane with the pilot and co-pilot claiming victory.

"Someone should post a seating diagram of the plane." he said, lazily.

See the link for a description, but basically the front dude in the picture is the bombardier, with the navigator sitting right behind him. They were in the extreme nose at the bottom of the plane.

The pilot and copilot sat next to each other further back and on top of the airplane.

The engineer/top turret gunner was right behind them, and stood when he was at his gun position.

The radio operator was about halfway back in the plane, and had a little sitting area with the radio.

The ball turret gunner was a little further back than the radio operator, hanging in a pod from the bottom of the aircraft.

The two waist gunners were back just a bit from the ball turret gunner.

The tail gunner is a long way from anyone in a pod at the end of the tail.

When I ran my simulations, it was 95 percent over 25 missions. Best of luck to you.

So after 25 missions, you would expect one of the twenty planes to survive? Does the fact that we don't have replacement aircraft factor in? What I mean is, 20 planes fly out the first day, and 16 come back. 20% mortality. If 16 planes go out the next day, 20% mortality means 3 (3.2) planes buy it. Doesn' the fact that fewer planes go out each day mean that you have a greater and greater chance of cashing out? Based on fewer numbers rather than total number of missions?

What I mean is, 20 planes fly out the first day, and 16 come back. 20% mortality. If 16 planes go out the next day, 20% mortality means 3 (3.2) planes buy it. Doesn' the fact that fewer planes go out each day mean that you have a greater and greater chance of cashing out? Based on fewer numbers rather than total number of missions?


The 95 percent factor was based on my running of simulations for 23 planes with 230 crew members. Of those 230 crew members, 12 survived through 25 missions, and the most of which who survived on one individual crew was four. I think that one or two actual aircraft survived, but I don't have the papers in front of me to check. Some of the crew members survived 25 missions by bailing out of a crashing plane and then joining another crew.

Our numbers may vary, though, because I'll shuffle the missions and won't fly them again in the same order and aircraft lineup.

In real terms, I think this mortality is probably somewhat accurate if the loss rates from the early days of the Air War held up. In WWII, though, the losses to German fighters over time meant that the survival rate was actually very high from early 1944 on. I guess for simulation purposes we can assume that our missions are in 1943.

:D I've already been busy working out plans for setting 1 or 2 bombs aside every mission to use on France. While Denver will be a bit more difficult due to location, I think we can figure a way to get it done.

Denver will be easy to find.

It's not finding it that is the problem, it's getting from England to Colorado that presents a problem. Logistics and the military considering us AWOL and trying to take us down is more of what I was thinking of.

But like I said, we'll find away to get it done. ;)

The 95 percent factor was based on my running of simulations for 23 planes with 230 crew members. Of those 230 crew members, 12 survived through 25 missions, and the most of which who survived on one individual crew was four. I think that one or two actual aircraft survived, but I don't have the papers in front of me to check. Some of the crew members survived 25 missions by bailing out of a crashing plane and then joining another crew.

Our numbers may vary, though, because I'll shuffle the missions and won't fly them again in the same order and aircraft lineup.

In real terms, I think this mortality is probably somewhat accurate if the loss rates from the early days of the Air War held up. In WWII, though, the losses to German fighters over time meant that the survival rate was actually very high from early 1944 on. I guess for simulation purposes we can assume that our missions are in 1943.

So, the twenty Chiefsplanet crews are not a squadron unto themselves. We are just 20 planes in the Allied arsenel that may fly any mission, with countless other crews. Is that correct. If I look out the window of my plane, I won't likely see Frazod in the next plane over trying to go to Denver. I might see some poor frightened unknown radio man wondering if he'll ever see his wife again and if she will ever learn to work the stick shift in the Hudson.

Yep. At some future point we could put everyone in one unit, but that would mean all going to the same target and putting one plane on lead, etc., which I didn't do in these simulations. You're all at different bases heading to different targets.

In her spare time, meme would also have sabotaged the guns to fire only "love" bullets....one's that explode several hundred feet above the ground and when they do explode they spread roses and daisy's.....

Jimnasium would be having to fight with meme about what she did to sabotage all the radar and mechanical gadgetry....

Big ChiefDAve would be going crazy because all he would be able to raise on the radio is the "All Democrats For Dean Channel" thanks to meme sabotaging the radio.....the channel would be playing a 24-hour version of John Lennon's "Give Peace A Chance".....

Withing hours of taking off, Warrior, CG and The Bad Guy would have killed everyone else or parachuted out for their own safety....

-It (the B-17) took such a beating it broke into three parts, and the pilot 1st Lt. Cyril Stidd and the two officers in the nose rode it down. It crashed in the Alps. The rest, they were taken prisoner and lived to come home. Donley and a very good buddy who lived in my tent by the name of Howard F. Brown from Wichita were flying waist, and Howard was trying to help the ball turret gunner out just as it broke apart and Donley jumped. Howard, the ball turret gunner and tail gunner were killed and their bodies were found still in the center section. The others jumped about the time Donley did and were all taken as POW's.

So, if we go down, get out alive, get taken prisoner, and escape, can we be reinstated and get back in the game?
