A fantasy version of Inter Island Air's B-17. This plane was fully armed and used to ward off air pirates while flying cargo between the islands. Includes textures only for the a2a B-17 with Accusim. Textures by Paul Grubich.
Here is my version of Inter Island Air B-17. In the early 50's IIA was having trouble with air pirates forcing their cargo C-47 planes down using surplus fighter planes from Russia. They would fly along side and force the cargo plane to land at a remote island airstrip and then remove the cargo. To counteract this piracy Inter Island Air bought two surplus B-17's and re-outfitted them with armament and hired veteran B-17 crews to fly them. After that they had very little trouble with air pirates.
Of course this is all fantasy and Inter Island Air never flew B-17's but it gives a valid reason for having a civil B-17 with guns and belongs in the "could have happened" category.
