B-17G Aluminum Overcast

12.8k Luuk2909  5.3 years ago

Hi everyone, this is my take on the B-17G.

First of all i have to thank some people:

*BogdanX he did very manny details and did the balancing so thank you so much Bogdan!*

*Then we have SimpleFlow he made placed and maked the guns work!*

*And Cedy117 let me use his cockpit instrument pannel*

#Thank you 3 so much, you are awesom!#

Now the B-17G:The B-17G was the best B-17 of them all with more guns, cuz guns mean victory!
To control the guns there are 3 turrets, the Ball turret what activates with AG3 the top turret is activated with AG4 and the tail with AG5.
THEY ALL WORK WITH TRIM
For the bombs goes: AG1 for the bombay doors, slide the trim up to open, if you want you can drop all of them at the same time with AG2.

The B-17G is probaply the most iconic thing next to the Tiger 1 and the spitfire!
Hope you enjoy this aircraft! Luuk ;)

Mobile friendly comming to you soon!

    I actually got to see The Aluminum Overcast, when she flew last year.
    She stopped in my town since there was a small airport there

    @regularpit It is named Aluminum Overcast because of the tight formations of bombers in which this plane was in, it would cast a shadow, and with the craft being made out aluminium, it was given the name "Aluminum Overcast"
