I built a cool mission in the full mission builder. It is a group of B-17s attacking St. LO. I am an ME 262 Pilot attemting to intercept. I would like to task a group of
p-51s to escort the B-17 into the target but do not understand how to task the P-51s to do this. Can anyone give me some advise?

Is simple. You have 2 ways of doing so:

1)Make sure you have a waypoint for your bombers in the place you want the escort to begin.Add yer escort on the map and , beside the initial point, add a new waypoint matching the time you will see on the bombers waypoint discussed previously.Now, for the P51's go to the waypoint tab and for the last waypoint click "Set". Then click the waypoint for bombers above described.
2)Make 2 flights , bombers and escort and make sure you match the timing for every waypoint. Thee pattern shoud be the same , waypoints, that is. You can reach a good match in waypoints by playing with flights speed.
Hope that helped.
