You can only do this by flying on a DF server that offers it and in "external" view only.....Join the server>select a plane that has a cockpit and enter the server>instantly exit the game (not server)/refly>select the B17 then>re-enter the game & fly as normal yet using only the external views.

B-17 and all other 4 engined heavies except the TB3 were not meant to be flyable only AI.....Btw the method above works for all AI.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The host has to have created a map that has the AI plane(s) included.

Well, first you get a B-17 pilot's handbook, and memorise it. Then, make about ten million dollars and buy your B-17. You'll need a little cash for storage maintenance and fuel, not to mention a pilot's license. Make good friends who are willing to act as ground crew, make sure some of them are A&Ps, and a few closer buddies who will be co-pilot and flight engineer. Move to an area near an airport where you can store the B-17, and then...oh wait, on a DF server? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif LEB's got that covered<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

When I host on a sunday more times then not I have A.I Planes included and the B-17 along with planes like the Me-210 and B-24 seems a hit as well.

Just look for a server called: blastie if you're interested m8 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
