Thread: B17 Bomber for FSX

  1. #1

    Default B17 Bomber for FSX

    I read a post somewhere about a B17 for FSX but for the life of me I can't remember where. Anybody know of a flyable B17 for FSX? Free or pay,either way.

    The Shockwave Wings Of Power B-17 for FS-2004 is an excellent aircraft. It is almost completely compatible with FSX, you just have to make a few small edits to the panel.cfg file.

    Try "b17g-g_fsx_fuddy.zip".

    Beautifully rendered, Virtual Cockpit as well as 2D.

    Wings and engines visible in either.

    Cowl flaps, Bomb Bay doors and sliding windows.

    All in 6.43 MB and it's freeware!

    Just make sure you have a long runway.

    Hi. I did a search for that file and could not find it. Is it here at Flightsim? Thanks, regards, Bob.

    Hi,

    I couldn't find where I downloaded it from. But here's the link I used. I use GetRight and it was in the "History".

    If this doesn't work I'll look further. I come across the listing frequently but can't remember where right now.

    UPDATE: Here's where - http://www.fs-freeware.net/index.php

    It's listed under FSX Propeller Airplane on page 4

    the shockwave bomber is awesome. it does now come in fsx too. i got that package yesterday and i am addicted to it. flight dynamics are great, the manuals are great, panels are great, i could go on but you get the idea.

    I second that. I never found the freeware but picked up the Wings of Power Pack at the store. It gives you the B-17, B-29, B-24 and several others including the P-51 which I already had. The bombers fly great but you can't move around the plane like I wish. One thing to watch. I bought the P-51 from the Pilot Shop about a month ago for $24. I just saw it (one month later) on the Pilot Shop for $19. Thats a pisser on it's own but then I found the bomber pack and it included the P-51, all for $24. So I guess the lesson here is SHOP before you buy. LOL
    End result though is Wings of Power planes rock!

    Regards
