What is the procedure to getting a B-29 to fly. I'd like to pilot one but I can't get it to do ANYTHING. Do you have to have a certain rank? Please give me the step by step on this if you would please. It would be greatly appreciated.

It's not player-flyable. Only AI-flyable.

AI only aircraft can be flown BUT:

1. Only from external view (they don't have cockpits)
2. Only in Dogfight mode missions using custom modified mission files
3. If you want other aircraft in the mission, only in online or LAN servers that are set up to run the previously mentioned custom modified mission files.

I appreciate the responses to the B-29 question. I don't see what the purpose is of having a plane in the game that you can't fly. Oh well. Thanks again folks.

You can't fly escort missions without something to escort http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I recently built a test mission for my KTO B29s with escort. Nothing like the sight of 24 heavies flying in close formation. If this sounds tasty, just be sure to separate your flights by 50 meters altitude. Even though we can't fly them, I'm still glad we can sit back and watch the show http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Or intercept them...its sheer madness taking a Ki-61 or Ki-100 (or Ki-84) against a group of 16 or 24 B-29s...the sheer firepower of all of those .50cals is immense. Particularly the quad turret on the top.
