Place the folder "texture.MCASIWA" into your ALPHA HU-16 Albatross folder.

Cut and Paste the following into your aircraft cfg:

title=ALPHA UF-1
ui_type=UF-1 Albatross
ui_variation=137900, MCAS IWAKUNI 1960
ui_typerole="Flying Boat"
ui_createdby="AlphaSim Ltd"
description=AlphaSim 2009\n\nThe Grumman HU-16B Albatross is a twin-engine amphibious flying boat. First flown in 1949, the HU-16 underwent a number of modifications and improvements over its storied career that included service with dozens of nations in a variety of roles. The HU-16B features a 16-foot wing extension over the initial production variant and was a definitive model, seeing service primarily with the United States Air Force as a coastal search-and-rescue aircraft. In total, Grumman built 466 Albatrosses, some of which still fly today in private collections.
