Aircraft of the Berlin Airlift

 

FS 2004

 

 

The default Flight Simulator 9 DC-3 is an excellent aircraft.There are many others such as the MAAM-SIM DC-3.

 

I use the default, with a customized panel. ††The panel can be downloaded from the Bluegrass Airlines FS 2004 Hangar

 

For the default DC-3 (C-47) you can download Royal Air Force Textures by Doug Adams and USAF textures by Steve Mullen here. (4.7 mb)

FS 98

The first flights of the Berlin Airlift were flown using the C-47 (the Military version of the venerable DC-3).The best Flight Sim model of this aircraft is the US Navy R4Dby Jan Visser, Roy Chaffin, and Bill Rambow.You can comprar cialis 20 mg and download this plane fromhttp://www.flightsim.comThere are versions for FS98 and FS2000.Go to the File Search area and search for r4d.†† There are several files needed to be downloaded.

 

We have a US Airforce C-47 paintedďCamel Caravan to BerlinĒ.It was downloaded from a german site FS-EDDI which was a wonderful resource for this project.My link to that site isnít working, but try this one for FS Design Berlin.http://members.lycos.co.uk/Berlin_flightsim/

 

The panel provided, and the airfile were reworked a bit by Bill Von Sennet.DC-3 sound by Trev Morson was added.

We have 3 different versions of the DC-4 which was used later in the Berlin Airlift.†† C-54 MATS (Military Air Transport),C-54 US Air Force, and a R5D2 US Navy.†† All of these planes require the C-54 MATS to be installed as the other 2 use the Mats Panel and Sound files.The Mats had a very nice panel, which Bill Von Sennet reworked a bit.Sound is from Tom Gibsons DC-4.

Sometimes when downloading a 2 megabyte file, you will get noise on the phone line which corrupts the file.If you get an error message when you try to unzip the file, try to download it again.I have downloaded all the files to assure that they have been uploaded properly.
