 Players are able to choose a Flying Fortress and customize it with a choice of authentic nose art. B-17 features the most detailed instrument panel ever seen in a bomber simulation. In addition, players are able to throttle each of the B-17's four engines and operate the flaps and tail.
 Ten crew members can be selected by studying their past missions, promotions, and medals. Crew members can be allocated to specific tasks such as navigating, carrying out bombing runs, and reacting to damage sustained. The player is able to view the action and take control of each crew member from pilot to bombardier.
