I can't seem to find a chart for the penalty for someone other than the Pilot or Co-Pilot landing the plane. Is it just -1?

Anyone still alive and able, bailout .

Having everyone bail over England makes the most sense I suppose...can the guy flying bail as well?

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

Dan,

Yes the guy flying can also bailout. He would aim the plane out to sea and set the auto pilot then jump out the open bomb bay. Though, if there are seriously wounded crewmen still on board then he probably would try to land the plane to save them... Tough decisions to make.

Been there, done that. My boys just couldn't leave the seriously wounded on the plane to die.

Is there a chart that tells you what landing modifiers are in place when your about to land or are they scattered about the damage to B-17 charts? In other words, do you just find them by chance as you mark down damage on your MC chart?
Thanks!

Brad,
There are two landing tables on the Green card, G-9 & G-10 Landing on Land/Water respectively. It was corrected in "The General" mag that the modifiers for landing on land are listed on table G-10 landing on water. These mods apply to either landing on water or land.

Here are the printer friendly versions:





Though there may be added modifiers due to damage taken, like landing gear inoperable or flaps/ailerons out. So, yes you will have to note this down as you go along.

hope this helps,
Jim P cool
