FSX-SP2 compatible Dee Waldron freeware Convair 580. Originally for FS2004, made suitable for FSX-SP2 with landing gear contact point adjustment, Nick Cooper's freeware FSX-SP2 suitable props, engine smoke, David Durst's freeware FSX Metroliner III panel, Fraser McKay's freeware FSX Fokker F-27 sound, a blank white flyable model and a blank gray and white flyable model which both can be painted, and eleven repaints by Tom Tiedman... five fictional military textures honoring America's 5 service branches, and six civilian and government textures... both fictional and mostly-real.

I take no credit for any of this. I just threw it all together.

INSTALLATION:
1.) Copy and paste the enclosed "fx_smoke_f6" file into your FSX "Effects" folder. (It's probably there already. The [SMOKESYSTEM] info. is already installed inside the "aircraft.cfg" file.)
2.) Copy and paste (or drag and drop) the enclosed "Convair 580 Multi-Pack" folder into your FSX "Airplanes" folder. (The gauges cab file is already installed inside the "panel" folder.) Your 580 is now in your menu under "Convair".
3.) Press your "I" key while flying your Convair 580 and enjoy the smoke.
