Realistic graphics, animations, and sounds convincingly recreate every aspect of the strategic air battles in WWII. Twenty five scenarios, in which you must manage your crew?s strengths and weaknesses, test your pilot and leadership skills. This is your team, they are under your command, and it is your job as a captain to complete the mission and take them home in one piece.

Control any of ten different crew positions, seeing the combat as a pilot, one of the gunners, or a communications officer. You can also fly one of the escort planes like P-38 Lightning, P-51 Mustang, and P-47 Thunderbolt. In addition, you are able to switch sides and fight against ?The Mighty Eighth? taking the role of a German Luftwaffe pilot and find out first hand why the B-17 bomber codename was the ?Flying Fortress?.
