I know this is an old topic but I can't find anything on this to assist.
I am trying to get the B17 into my dogfight list so that it can be flown from the outside.
I tried adding it to my BornPlace list and then selecting a flyable aircraft first before trying a B17 but no joy. Even after using a flyable a/c and going back, the B17 is not even on my list of a/c. What am I doing wrong?
thank for any help.

You have to use the name of the aircraft that's used in the skin folder. For example:

B-17

does you no good. The ingame versions require you to specify the B-17. If you look at the skin folder for the B-17G, for example, you have to place it down as B-17G in the bornplace slot. If I wanted to fly a P-51D, I can't just put down P-51D. I have to put down either:

P-51D-20NA

or

P-51D-5NT

Use the name of the plane that the skin folder uses and you should be fine. Also, questions like this should be posted in the Mission builders forum. There's also an FAQ in there and a topic built specifically for this purpose.
