Also, the propeller blade has been updated to provide a more realistic looking surface. The original repaint and this update have been tested with FSX only.

To install, you must first have the textures from cv580_unitedexpress.zip installed. Once the original repaint is installed, copy the files in the 'Copy These Files to Texture Folder' folder in this update to the original texture folder, replacing the original files. No changes are required to the aircraft.cfg file for this update.
