saw a film once, a real long time ago that had a B17 coming in for landing, they used to fire a red flare to warn the airbase control tower that they were badly damaged and would be crash landing.

would be a nice touch if at all possible to add.

I've wanted flares for the fighters that had it too. A much cooler way to signal than blink nav lights or toggling smoke.
