It's true that due to the rank system in FB (and in IL-2), unless the mission designer is careful you can have the player sat in the wrong plane.
I don't think its a bug, you just need to be careful.

Any planes in the same squadron are elegible for the players use and will be allocated according to your rank.

If you have flights you DONT want the player to populate then simply ensure they are in a different squadron.

Assigning a different group/flight number is not enough, and simply ticking AI only doesn't work either!

What's dodgy about it?

A bit of care taken at the design stage and the 'problem' is gone.

I can't get off the first mission! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'm the kind of guy that likes to fly as a low ranking officer....
So I'm sat on the runway , plane four in the group of four.
I've started my engines and am waiting for the three planes ahead to take-off - when suddenly I'm rammed from behind by a friendly Jeep! We both explode and I'm 'credited' with a friendly kill!

I nearly fell off my chair laughing. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But seriously I'm sure there's potential there, a little tweaking first though.

BTW I'd suggest a spell-check over your briefings too (Don't forget your capital letters too)

Let me know if you have a new version to look over. (If you want me to after I've just bashed you /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )
