B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th!
Description official descriptions
B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th! is a single-player only flight sim featuring the famous WWII bomber, made by some of the team who also created B-17 Flying Fortress for MicroProse.
You can take control over every of 16 positions available in this plane: Pilot, Gunner, Bomber or communications officer. You can also fly one of the escort fighters (P-38 Lightning, P-51 Mustang, and P-47 Thunderbolt) or German fighters (Bf 109, FW 190, and Me 262).
The flight model is very accurate, as is the graphics and sounds used to represent plane damage.
In addition to managing the aircraft and bombing missions, one also has to manage the bomber crew, take care of the wounded, make sure they don't panic under fire, almost like in an RPG.

One of the data files of the original version of the game contained links to hardcore porn websites.
According to the developer, this was caused by, during development, merging several different data files into one larger file. Every time a file was added to the large file, space was allocated. However, when too much memory was allocated, the extra space was filled with what was on the disk there before.
