About This Game

1992 Classic is where it all started. Their chances for survival were slim. But, despite tremendous adversity, the crew of the Memphis Belle returned from their 25th mission to become heroes of the Allied air offensive in World War II.
What did the courageous flyboys of the Memphis Belle really experience as they plowed through relentless anti-aircraft fire over Nazi-occupied Europe? Find out for yourself as you lead a 10-men crew to victory... or defeat... against squadrons of Nazi warplanes in the legendary B-17 Flying Fortress!

A World War II adventure in the sky

The most complete and accurate bomber simulation ever produced, the B-17 Flying Fortress will have you negotiating 25 perilous missions in broad daylight from bases in eastern England.

Manage, fly, fight!

You'll allocate crew members to their specific tasks! You'll fly in authentic WW II formation with other B-17s! And you'll destroy strategic targets like canals, bridges, dockyards, submarine pens, and factories in dangerous bombing runs!

A Detailed simulation

Authentic flight dynamics, ordnance, and World War II atmosphere produce strikingly realistic flight simulation, down to the choice of historically authentic nose art!
Select 10 crew members by studying their past missions, promotions, and medals but be ready to take control of each and every position onboard.

Back from 1992!

This is the original MicroProse B-17 Flying Fortress, a real legend in the history of video games. Fly the B-17 Flying Fortress and become a legend before your own time!
