I think all the seats are filled for 7, but there's (ahem) always new spots after each mission. Check with Talisman to be sure you're on the list of replacement crews, and if so, I'll bet that you're on by the next mission. So far, no one's had to wait more than one mission.

Target: Rotterdam
Mid-formation horizontally, high vertically

Zone 1 Out: Britain

No enemy

Zone 2 Out: English Channel

No enemy

Zone 3 Out: North Sea

No enemy

Zone 4 Out: Netherlands (Entering Target Zone)

5 Fw190s attack

Hawaiianboy fires, misses
Talisman fires, kills Fw190
Radar chief fires, misses
Fat elvis fires, misses
Scaga fires, misses
Garcia bronco fires, misses
Philfree fires, misses

Fw misses, breaks off attack

Fw scores 1 hit
-superficial damage to radio room

Fw strafes in from 3 o’clock high, scores 6 hits
-superficial damage to starboard wing
-superficial damage to starboard wing
-ball turret – Hawaiianboy’s heat is knocked out. It gets cold fast in that ball turret, too.
-superficial damage to tail
-port wing flap out
-port wing - #1 outboard engine goes up in a stream of sparks and flame, starts cutting out. Enddelt keeps the plane under control while SNR tries to adjust power. Unfortunately, the damage won’t allow the engine to be stopped and feathered, so the engine continues to sputter, but with little power. El Duderino is not going to be able to keep up with the rest of the formation, and begins dropping back.

Fw strafes in and banks from 9 o’clock high, scores 9 hits from front to back (El Duderino has run into some veteran Nazis.)
-nose – Garcia bronco sustains light wound to mid chest
-nose – philfree sustains light wound to left foot
-superficial damage to pilot compartment
-port wing root damaged
-superficial damage to bomb bay

Talisman fires, damages Fw190

Damaged Fw misses, breaks off attack

Entering Bomb Zone
Good Weather
Medium Flak - misses
Despite blood staining the front of his flight suit, Garcia bronco lines up and does his job – 30% score

El Duderino is falling back fast, and Hawaiianboy is going to be under pressure with both waist guns out. Enddelt makes the decision to drop down to 10,000 feet and try to sneak out of occupied territory unobserved. El Duderino is limping along with the sputtering engine, which is actually worse than having the engine completely die, so its cruising speed is cut almost in half. It’s a sitting duck for fighters, so all the gunners get their adrenaline pumping. Even though they’re not familiar with the front guns, Scaga and Fat Elvis move up to the nose and take over the nose gun and cheek guns for the wounded bombardier and navigator. This frees a limping philfree up to be the full-time navigator on the lonely trip home, and Garcia bronco heads toward the back of the plane to tend his wound and be ready in case help is needed at the ball turret or tail gun.

Radar chief fires, kills Fw190
Hawaiianboy fires, misses

Zone 3 Back: North Sea

El Duderino continues to slog back at half speed, and the Germans have sighted in on the wounded bomber. The nose gun, top turret, and ball turret guns are running low on ammunition.

Zone 2: English Channel

No enemy

Zone 1: England

The weather is poor at the base, and the radio is not working, so SNR hopes that the runway is clear. The ground crews are stunned to hear the sound of a B-17, one engine sputtering and fighting, nearly two hours after the formation was due to return. Cheers arise as a battered El Duderino cuts through the cloud bank, wings inadvertently waggling, circles once to line up with the runway, and then bounces to a rough landing. El Duderino travels to the end of the runway, cuts power, and then circles involuntarily off the tarmac as the #1 engine continues to push it forward. The plane slows further in the mud and a ground crew member runs underneath to chock the wheels. Mission accomplished.

Aftereffects

None – Despite injuries to four crew members, the plane and the crew are easily repairable.

Zone 2 Out: English Channel

Zone 3 Out: North Sea

No enemy

Zone 4 Out: Netherlands (Entering Target Zone)

1 Fw190, 3 Me109s attack – 1 Fw190 and 1 Me109 driven away by fighters

alphaman fires, hits Me109
rednfeisty fires, misses
mrblond fires, misses

Fw strafes in from 12 o’clock low upward into Zod’s belly, scoring 7 hits
-superficial damage to starboard wing
-superficial damage to nose
-pilot compartment – top turret gun is knocked out of commission, and alphaman sustains a light wound to the left thigh.
-superficial damage to bomb bay
-superficial damage to radio room
-superficial damage to waist
-tailplane hit, but no significant damage

Hit Me scores 2 hits
-starboard wing root damaged
-port wing – Uh-oh. A bullet penetrates the outboard fuel tank, and in a flash of light and heat the entire tank explodes. The initial explosion throws the plane to the right, and it then violently rolls to the left and begins a long, violent corkscrew into the ground.


Copilot papasmurf (6) and Navigator Alphaman (6) are killed in the initial explosion.

Pilot Morphius (3), Radio Op. Redbrian (6), Ball Turret Gunner MrBlond (2) are knocked unconscious in the initial explosion, and mercifully do not know when they hit the ground in the near-sonic-speed crash.

Engineer RednFeisty (2) and Tail Gunner Chief Henry (6) aren’t so lucky. They survive the initial explosion, but are pinned inside the plane by centrifugal forces. They can’t escape from the doomed plane and have no chance as it buries itself into the Dutch countryside.

Left Waist Gunner MikeTheWildcat (2) took the brunt of the explosion and was thrown out of the plane immediately. Seriously injured and on fire, he deploys his chute, but it too is on fire. The chute fails at 4,000 feet and he becomes a flaming projectile.

Bombardier Saggysack (2) is hurled from the plane at 14,000 feet, crashing through the plexiglass nose. Semi-conscious and disoriented, he deploys his chute too quickly and it shreds at high speed. He becomes a projectile as well.

Right Waist Gunner jenson71 (5) is hurled from the plane at 3,000 feet. At that point, he is diving too fast to deploy his chute and too disoriented to do it anyway. He too slams into Dutch soil.


No bomb run

Aftereffects

Sadly, the Wrath of Zod is no more.

Eligible for next mission

None.

Not much you can do when that happens. RIP, unlucky crew of the Zod.

The top turret has twin guns, as does the tail gun and ball turret gun, so they're more likely to kill a plane when they hit it. Even so, that was a spectacular performance. Kill or be killed, I guess.

Engineer RednFeisty (2) and Tail Gunner Chief Henry (6) aren’t so lucky. They survive the initial explosion, but are pinned inside the plane by centrifugal forces. They can’t escape from the doomed plane and have no chance as it buries itself into the Dutch countryside.

Left Waist Gunner MikeTheWildcat (2) took the brunt of the explosion and was thrown out of the plane immediately. Seriously injured and on fire, he deploys his chute, but it too is on fire. The chute fails at 4,000 feet and he becomes a flaming projectile.

Bombardier Saggysack (2) is hurled from the plane at 14,000 feet, crashing through the plexiglass nose. Semi-conscious and disoriented, he deploys his chute too quickly and it shreds at high speed. He becomes a projectile as well.

Right Waist Gunner jenson71 (5) is hurled from the plane at 3,000 feet. At that point, he is diving too fast to deploy his chute and too disoriented to do it anyway. He too slams into Dutch soil.


No bomb run

Aftereffects

Sadly, the Wrath of Zod is no more.

Eligible for next mission

None.

Not much you can do when that happens. RIP, unlucky crew of the Zod.
Obviously, morph does not have the skills to pilot a vehicle. Perhaps someone should reassign him to digging latrines or painting stones around the base?

The excitement isn’t quite over since the landing gear won’t deploy, but htismaqe doesn’t panic. Sdchiefsfan radios in the problem, so the runway is cleared by the time Flyin’ Doublewide arrives. Htismaqe lines up, comes down gently, and the plane grinds to a stop amid spark and even a little bit of fire. The fire crews take care of the situation, though, and the damage is minor.

-port wing – landing gear is out. A belly landing is in Flyin’ Doublewide’s future.

Interesting note:

I was talking to a retired gentleman the other day and turns out he was involved in restoring a B-17. One of the interesting things was that there are about 600 miles of wire in one of these things! And almost everything is electrical or electrical assisted.

The thing I was wanting to point out though is that he stated that if the landing gear wouldn't deploy they had a big problem. It seems that if they landed on the ball turret, the plane would break in half! So they would jettison the ball before landing. It was pretty easy to do I guess, just a matter of taking a hammer to these two bolts that held it on.

Just thought this might be interesting with the number of belly landings we have had to date.

On Friday, an employee resigned rather suddenly (albeit in a friendly manner), so we had a long unscheduled talk at the end of the day. When I finally came out of my office, the other employees had bought me a birthday cake, but had finally given up and gone home, so I just found the birthday cake on the conference table. Nice thought, though.

On Saturday, I wrenched my back and had back spasms all weekend.

On Saturday night, my wife took me out to dinner nonetheless, and I've had a minor case of food poisoning both yesterday and today, which continues unabated.

Other than that, though, it was a pretty good birthday. Thanks for the greeting!

Ow. my head hurts.

The other day my head was hurting and then I realized that I had wrapped a big rubber band around it just to see if it would fit and then I had forgotten about it. You might want to check your head for a rubber band.

Good thing it wasn't around your neck, breathing is important some days.

-pilot compartment – windscreen is shattered, exposing Bob_Damned_Dole and Clint in Wichita to the elements. The pilot and copilot confer, and elect to follow through with the bombing run before they drop out of formation.
-superficial damage to starboard wing
-port wing – inboard fuel tank is hit and leaking. It appears that it won’t be a problem given the moderate length of the mission.

2bikemike will not be denied, despite the flak – 20% score

Zone 4: France (Leaving Target Zone)

2 Me109s driven off by fighters

Zone 3 Back: Western Channel

Having held out as long as possible, ClintinWichita descends out of formation so he can avoid frostbite. Old_geezer cuts a deal with two other badly damaged B-17s that need to descend as well, and the three planes drop down in formation. Six fighters that have found their way into the formation also agree to descend and watch out for the crippled planes. The downside for Lucy Quipment is that the lower altitude will make the fuel burn faster. Loki does some quick calculations, and determines that the plane can make it back to base, but it’ll be close.

Zone 2: English Channel
Lucy Quipment II’s little friends stay busy over the Channel.

2 Me110s are driven off by the fighters

3 Fw109s are driven off by the fighters

1 Me109 is driven off by the fighters

No enemy

Zone 1: England

Bad weather – visibility is low and it’s raining

The weather is a problem, because Lucy Quipment is burning fuel even faster now. ClintinWichita bids adieu to his little squadron, banks left, and heads to the coast. The fuel sensors are going off now, as he crosses over the coast and small fishing villages. The weather is making it tough to find an airfield, and the crew sits nervously as old_geezer works the phones, relaying messages up to ClintinWichita via chief52. The plane descends lower, lower down to only a few hundred feet as the plane searches for a place to land.

At last, an airfield appears. Clint lines up for a tough landing – bad weather, strange airfield, dead pilot, low fuel, wounded copilot, landing gear inoperable, and the windscreen gone. He takes a deep breath, sets the glide slope, and coasts in for a perfect belly landing, the rain smoothing the skid and not even kicking up sparks. Give it a few days repair, fly it back to base, and this plane will fly again.

Aftereffects

The crew gets a bit of a respite as the parts are trucked in to repair the plane. A nice three-day leave in western England, tasting Devonshire cream and quaffing meads is enough to make them adjust to the loss of their second pilot.

Zone 4: France (Leaving Target Zone)

2 Me109s driven off by fighters

Zone 3 Back: Western Channel

Having held out as long as possible, ClintinWichita descends out of formation so he can avoid frostbite. Old_geezer cuts a deal with two other badly damaged B-17s that need to descend as well, and the three planes drop down in formation. Six fighters that have found their way into the formation also agree to descend and watch out for the crippled planes. The downside for Lucy Quipment is that the lower altitude will make the fuel burn faster. Loki does some quick calculations, and determines that the plane can make it back to base, but it’ll be close.

Zone 2: English Channel
Lucy Quipment II’s little friends stay busy over the Channel.

2 Me110s are driven off by the fighters

3 Fw109s are driven off by the fighters

1 Me109 is driven off by the fighters

No enemy

Zone 1: England

Bad weather – visibility is low and it’s raining

The weather is a problem, because Lucy Quipment is burning fuel even faster now. ClintinWichita bids adieu to his little squadron, banks left, and heads to the coast. The fuel sensors are going off now, as he crosses over the coast and small fishing villages. The weather is making it tough to find an airfield, and the crew sits nervously as old_geezer works the phones, relaying messages up to ClintinWichita via chief52. The plane descends lower, lower down to only a few hundred feet as the plane searches for a place to land.

At last, an airfield appears. Clint lines up for a tough landing – bad weather, strange airfield, dead pilot, low fuel, wounded copilot, landing gear inoperable, and the windscreen gone. He takes a deep breath, sets the glide slope, and coasts in for a perfect belly landing, the rain smoothing the skid and not even kicking up sparks. Give it a few days repair, fly it back to base, and this plane will fly again.

Aftereffects

The crew gets a bit of a respite as the parts are trucked in to repair the plane. A nice three-day leave in western England, tasting Devonshire cream and quaffing meads is enough to make them adjust to the loss of their second pilot.

Damn I have been promoted again. I don't know if that is a good thing or not. It does not appear that pilots and co-pilots have a very high survival rate.

After 7 missions, I have survived 5 times, fallen twice. Should I re-enlist ? I 'm running out of lives here !

Your next in line to get capped!:) Us boot brown Lt's in the navigators chair seem to have a much longer life expectancy. Knock on wood.:thumb:
