It was fun trying to get a damaged bomber home, keeping the crew healthy, managing the fuel, as it often leaked from the wings. It's a pity they didn't keep the game play and just update the graphics for the next one... B17 the mighty 8th. ( Because it is a mess.. Just played it and the plane took off under AI, though a tree and a hanger ! Lost all 4 planes due to crashing into each other. ) This one was much better... But it has been a long time. Maybe I'll try it again.
