Here's the crew boys:

Pilot JOhn
Copilot Bob_Damned_Dole
Bombardier bkkcoh
Navigator WilliamTheIrish
Engineer Dartgod
Radio Op. ck_IN
Tail Gunner grandllama
Ball Turret Gunner CASHMAN
Right Waist Gunner Slim_Shady
Left Waist Gunner penchief ( on sick leave )
Replacment Left Waist Gunner: ZachKC

Looks like I pretty dam good crew, as long as Bob doesn't bring them damn yappy dogs along. ROFL I hope William is better at math than I am, or we might be getting lost real soon.

Well we need a nam, and I'm open to suggestions, and will pick the best if I find one better than one I might come up with.

While JOhn may direct the naming and artwork, I would strongly suggest not letting him spell the name of your plane.

Good luck, Captain JOhn. Don't worry, we will pick up the targets that bkkcoh misses.

Heck, I'm hoping we find the target, as I'm not sure about WilliamTheIrish's navigating skills. :shrug:

I figure Bob will be of no help, what between the beer and tiny BBQ grill he'll be bringing, and trying to take a gun away from someone, I doubt if he'll be of much use.

At least you won't have trouble fitting that grill in the plane. That and the dachsunds probably won't take up 2 square feet.

Speaking of which, you had better have him get some different dogs. I plan on bringing my mutt, Rover, and he don't like none of them german types......

Wow, I can insult Brad and his family heritage for weeks and hide it in the guise of this game. This is gonna be fun.

Hey JOhn. I posted this in the original thread.

I'm reserving Commando Chief as the name of our plane. We even have the nose art done already. As long as JOhn doesn't object.

Well at least he'll keep the CO off of my ass, what with his daily rants about the mission assignments and such.

Not sure how Penchief is gonna fit in, as we have had a few arguments. :D

btw, is CASHMAN small enough to fit in the Ball turret? :hmmm:

As long as it isn't Tom Cash, I think you are okay. After all, fitting 10 guys in one turret would be tough.

We have to be behind for you to use those. Considering your engineer can't even find a dartboard (look at his face for God's sake), your co-pilot will be incarcerated by MPs in no time due to his constant insubordination at the way the CO posts job duties and keeps sticking them to the top of the board, and your navigator will be too busy pestering your radio man to turn off the IU game and find a KState one to even help you fly - I feel pretty safe staying out in front of you.

Heck, I will even wag my wings once in a while so you know which way to fly.

Well in that case, I'll just have the nosegunner/Bombardier, bkkcoh use your plane to sight in his guns :D

What is that planes designation? I've never seen a German plane in that configuration, but am familiar with the Japanese variant that looks exactly like it.

I hope BOB is sober this mission, I really hate to think that WilliamTheIrish or Dartgod would have to fly us home if I get hit. :eek:

btw, who keeps stealing my flack jackets? I must have at least 4 to sit on during every mission. Gotta protect the jewels. :D

John waggles the wings, but the fire grows. BobDamnedDole attempts a fuel dump and turns off the #1 engine, but it’s no use. The fire grows quickly and it’s only going to get worse. John reluctantly puts the plane straight and level and gives the bailout order.

Pilot JOhn (4) and Navigator WilliamTheIrish (4) bail out easily, land and hit the ground running. However, they had the misfortune of landing near a German base, so it’s just a matter of time. 20 hours later, they’re discovered in a cellar munching on potatoes and are marched off to Germany.



Well thats a wrap :deevee:

Yes, Rain Man killed me roughly 10 times, blinded me once, and left me with missing/non working limbs many a times.

Agreed, this B-17 stuff was terrific. I remember starting off as some low-level flunky, but my plane was never destroyed and I had slowly worked my way up to 3rd or 4th from the captain's chair when it wrapped up.

It was very cool. I honestly cannot imagine how long it took the Rain Guy to figure out what happened and then type it all up however.

Rain Man was secretly working with Stalin to make sure that CP would be unable to secure a foot-hold in eastern Europe.

IMO,I think the bomber crews were getting a little too close to knocking
out the BMW factory in Apricotzen.
