This is a repaint of the de Havilland Vampire F.3 by Robert Robinson, to represent an English Electric-built Vampire F3 VP768 (RCAF 17067) while serving with No. 438 (Aux) Sqdn., based at St Huberts Quebec in the early 1950's. This aircraft was sold privately in the U.S. in 1958 and sold on to the Mexican Air Force where it served with Escuadron 200 as F.A.M. 7 until struck off charge in 1969. By Dave Quincey.

Copy the 'texture.RCAF' folder into your ...Simobjects/Airplanes/DeHavilland Vampire F3 folder, then open the aircraft.cfg file and add the following after the last [fltsim.xx] entry:

Category =airplane
description=The de Havilland DH.100 Vampire was a British jet-engine fighter. It was commissioned by the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, and was the second jet fighter to enter service with the RAF, after the pioneering Gloster Meteor. Although it arrived too late to see combat during the war, it served with front line RAF squadrons until 1955, and continued in use as a trainer until 1966. It also served with many air forces worldwide, and set several aviation firsts and records most notably the first jet to cross the Atlantic, the first jet to make a carrier landing (sea vampire) holder of the world altitude record back in 1948 of 59,446ft, over 11 miles up!
Almost 3,300 Vampires were built, a quarter of them under licence in other countries. The Vampire design was also developed into the de Havilland Venom fighter-bomber as well as naval Sea Vampire variants

Replace the .xx with the next fltsim number and save.
