This extensive modification to Cal Classic Propliner's DC-7 into an airtanker was done with their permission. The base DC-7 for FSX/P3D3 is required for the panel, gauges, effects, and documentation to appear correctly. The DC-7 has seen many years of service as an airtanker. Despite the USFS deciding to no longer contract the DC-7 for aerial firefighting in 2003, stating it was too old Several have remained flying as airtankers for nearly 2 decades after that decision on state contracts mainly in the Pacific Northwest. The DC-7 is large and fast. Despite it's age, the DC-7 is able to carry 3,000 gallons of retardant and cruise at high speeds. It's 350 mph cruise speed is slightly affected by the external tank. But it is still quite fast and has remained a viable tanker for decades and is likely the reason for it being the last remaining radial engine tanker in service in the United States. Only a few aircraft remain flyable, owned by Erickson Aero. This pack contains 2 model versions and repaints representing 3 operators. Butler Aviation, Erickson Aero, and T&G Aviation. There are a total of 7 aircraft represented. Aircraft should be compatible with FSX up to P3D v4.5. Original aircraft by Jens Kristensen, Tom Gibson, and Greg Pepper. Aircraft donor part conversions by Bjoern Kesten. Sounds by Jon Jefferys. Airtanker modification and repaints by Nicholas Mitchell.

This extensive airtanker modification pack are modifications of Cal Classic Propliners DC-6s with their permission. Cal Classic's base DC-6s (CB-16 and CB-17) models are required for these aircraft's panel, gauges, effects, and documentation to appear properly. This package includes 3 model versions of the DC-6 and custom repaints that represent Macavia/Sis-Q, Sis-Q, Securite Civile, TBM Inc., and Conair. Retardant effects are not included. The DC-6 operated across the world as an airtanker. It was used in the United States, Canada, and France. Depending on the version, operator and tank design the DC-6 could carry anywhere from 2,000 gallons to 3,000 gallons of retardant. A special feature of the DC-6 was it's ability to reverse it's propellers into beta or reverse thrust. Something rarely found on radial engine aircraft. A feature that also found it's way to the DC-7. The DC-6's last operator was Conair finally retiring their last tanker in the early 2000s. US service as well as France did not make it out of the early-mid 1990s. Only flying versions that remain are rural transports and museum pieces. Most have become boneyard relics. Sadly, no airtanker versions remained flyable. These should be compatible for FSX up to P3D v4.5. Original aircraft by Jens Kristensen, Tom Gibson, and Greg Pepper.

This is a repaint of the F-27-500 in Air Zaire colors. The freeware FSX Native with VC F-27-500 by Bjorn Kesten is needed for this repaint. It was converted from Mike Stone's and Tom Gibson's models. The textures are 32bit DDS. It was tested on FSX-SE, but should work on FSX & P3Dv3. Air Zaire operated 2 F-27-400s (leased) and 8 F-27-600s (purchased). In 1983 they put in an order to Fokker for 4 F-27-500s. However the aircraft were never delivered. To avoid collapse, due to financial problems and rising expenses, Air Zaire's fleet was reduced in 1984. One B-737-298C, and two F.27-600s were withdrawn, while the new Fokker F-27-500 order was cancelled. This repaint is of one of the Fokker F-27-500s which were ordered by Air Zaire, but never delivered. It was painted in Air Zaire's scheme, with Dutch registration.

This is a repaint of the DC-4 in Air Zaire colors. The freeware DC-4 (C-54) V3 by Jens B Kristensen is needed for this repaint. This repaint was tested on FSX-SE. It should also work on FSX & P3D v1-3. Textures are 32bit DDS. Air Zaire operated 8 DC-4s. These were passed on to the airline by Air Congo, after the name change in 1971. This DC-4, 9Q-CBG was with Air Congo/Air Zaire from 1967 to July 1976, when it was sold to Zaire Aero Service.

for FSX and P3Dv1-3 32-Bit Versions Authors: Ulrich Esser, Thomas Roehl and Ed Wells History: LET-410-Originally developed for FS2004 by the Pannon Wings Design Team of Bence Benedek, Tibor Kokai and Jiri Masnik. After securing permission from Tibor Kokai to convert their work to native FSX, Sim-outhouse members Ulrich Esser (Bluebear) and Ed Wells (Falcon409) began the process of updating the models to native FSX V1. This conversion process itself was done by Bluebear. The black panel was completely rebuilt by Falcon409, creating/changing new texture sets and gauges/sounds working and many other things for native FSX. Now LET-410 V2 is the current development. It features - New specular and bump 2048 HD textures. Enhanced shine effects with GlobalEnv_AC_Chrome. - 3 more models based of the original now available. (NG, Interflug UVP-T and Skydiving). - New grey cockpit style with new western world gauges, systems similar to the older black one. - New exterior and interior sound system. - In respect to the original authors the team modified nearly all original models and paintings. 23 fully new liveries are included.
