This repaint is designed to be used with Manfred Jahns' and company's FSX native, P3D(1-4) C-97 package. This repaint is NOT for FS2004 models. The Boeing C-97 or 377 Stratocruiser as it was also known is a gigantic radial engine transport that served as a military transport as well as a civilian airliner from the late 1940s into the 1960s. After their service was up, many sat around in the western US boneyards until eyes fell on them to become fire bombing airtankers. hawkins & Powers acquired some to turn into airtankers. Which turned out to be a labor intensive process. T-97 was a second chance airtanker, it previously was T-84. It had a massive for it's time 4,000 gallon tank installed in the belly. Making it by far, the largest air tanker in service. Even by today's standards it's still large. This however, led to it's likely downfall. It's shear size at the time limited it's use. Only being used on a few fires in Alaska and other areas in the western US and the Yellowstone Fire Storm in 1988 were it's only notable uses before it's eventual demise. It now sits at Hawkins & Powers' Museum in Greybull, WY. Repaint by: Nicholas Mitchell.

This is a repaint of the Convair 440 in Air Maldives colors. The freeware CalClassic Convair 440 by Greg Pepper and Tom Gibson is needed for this repaint. This repaint was tested on FSX-SE, and should work on FSX & P3Dv3. FS2004 BMP textures are also included. Air Maldives operated only the two CV-440s during its short existence. This repaint is of 8Q-AMIOI, 'Flying Fish 1'. HISTORY: Air Maldives came into existence in 1974. Two Convair CV-440 Metropolitans were acquired from Caribbean United Airlines, and it started scheduled services on October 9 1974. Apart from an internal route network, it also flew internationally to Colombo, Sri Lanka. In 1976 it went through reorganization. However, in May 1977, the Maldivian government grounded its two Convair 440s, and freezed its accounts, forcing it to cease operations. A new carrier, Maldive International Airlines, was formed as a subsidiary of Indian Airlines Corporations, and began domestic operations in 1981. However, it was also unsuccessful, and was succeeded on September 30, 1984 by Maldives Airways, a new state operation with ambitious Mideast backing.

This small repaint pack was created mainly for P3D users, and the stock Captain Sim C-130 provided with P3D. But the liveries should work in FSX with some modifications to the aircraft.cfg entries provided in this pack. As P3D and FSX models differ if these are to be applied to the Captain Sim C-130X pack aircraft. These textures are designed to replace the Cal Fire C-130 in my original C-130 airtanker texture package, but that package is not required. Updates to the livery on T-118 were made to accurately represent the final livery design for Cal Fire. I have also included T-116, which will be the second Cal Fire HC-130H to enter service. The Cal Fire Hercules' are expected to enter service some time in mid-late 2021, equipped with Coulson's RADS XXL 4,000 gallon constant flow tanks. The same system in their C-130s. Cal Fire came to acquire these HC-130Hs from the USFS' now ended tanker program after only a few seasons of use. The USFS had acquired them originally from the US Coast Guard in exchange for surplus C-27J Spartans from the USAF. Cal Fire has acquired all 7 aircraft, which they plan to convert into LATs (Large Air Tankers). Repaints by Nicholas Mitchell.
