Is there and easy/quick way to find out which aircraft has the 'Player' checkbox checked? When I can't remember, I have to select every aircraft icon and go through the planes and look. It takes a while sometimes. There has got to be a better way to find out what plane you will be flying!

Player's flight has a little flag symbol above each waypoint, I think.

Wild Bill: The player's aircraft/flight icon has a flag. It doesn't always show at every waypoint, but look for the little triangular flag on top of the dot.

Dang FSM, aren't you usually asleep in your part of the world at this time? I guess great minds think alike!

Ahh.. Thanks guys. I see a rectangular flag on the first waypoint. And when I select it, the Player checkbox is checked. Time for some F4U Practice shooting rockets!

If you want to change the player's aircraft, just pick ANY flyable plane and check it. That becomes the new player's aircraft.

If you want to make the mission a coop with no player's aircraft selected, check ANY flyable plane and then uncheck it. That's it. No need to actually find the specific player's plane.

If the first waypoint is visible in the current zoom level, it's the first waypoint. If the first waypoint is not visible, it's the waypoint earliest in the flight that is visible.
